    Description

      java.lang.NullPointerException
      	at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.interactive.form.PDNonTerminalField.getChildren(PDNonTerminalField.java:130)
      	at org.apache.pdfbox.preflight.process.AcroFormValidationProcess.validateField(AcroFormValidationProcess.java:196)

      The "field" / annotation that makes the problem is at "36 0 o", it is the link annotation.

      From my understanding, this is an incorrect PDF, a link annotation isn't a field. I tried returning just null, that change works with preflight.
