Identifying a problem custom field

I have an issue with upgrading JIRA.  It seems whenever we attempt an upgrade to a version beyond 6.2, our current version, the indexing is destroyed by a rogue customfield.  However, we have so many customfields generated I am uncertain of how to isolate the one causing the problem.  Here is a sample of the errors we are getting:

The best way for you to go forward would be to upgrade with no plugins in. It is more likely caused by a plugin rather than a custom field created by that plugin.

Once you have upgraded fine, you can then enable oneplugin at a time and seewhich one malfunctions.

We have the same issue.  Did you have any luck with the above approach Cody?  Any other solution?
