Error: Call "PropertyCollector.RetrieveContents"

New to me this morning is this error:
The server fault 'SystemError' had no message.  Error Stack: Call "PropertyCollector.RetrieveContents" for object "propertyCollector" on vCenter "vCenterNAME" failed.

This happened to all my templates after converting them to VMs and trying to edit settings.
Hmmm... I hadn't changed anything since upgrading to 4.1u1.  Maybe that caused the problem, maybe it was something else.

The fix: unregister and re-register the VM.  Done.
