All flow accessed from within a VF give UNEXPECTED TOKEN: ':' error

Since yesterday we receive the following error on all VF pages that have a flow imbedded.


unexpected token: ':'


An unexpected error has occurred. Your solution provider has been notified. (Flow__Interview)     



I am noticing this too.   I noticed that my Sandox is now migrated to Winter 2014.  I bet it is related to that.


I also notice that I cannot even save a flow anymore in my Sandox with Winter 2014.  I always ge that same 'UNEXPECTED TOKEN: ':'' error.

Same issue with me since Winter '14 was released!


I made a very simpe Visualforce page, controller, and Flow to verify it wasn't something on my end:


<apex:page controller="Case_Test">
    <flow:interview interview="{!testFlow}" name="Test" />


public class Case_Test {
    public Flow.Interview.Test testFlow {get; set;}


And the Flow (unique name "Test") is simply two screens together without any variables, decisions, etc in the background.


I've created a case with Salesforce yesterday regarding this error and will let you know the results!

Good news - Salesforce is working on it!


"So looks like this is actually a known issue that came about after the Sandbox refresh. Our developers have actually opened a ticket to investigate and resolve this. A few other customers have reported this-so I've added this case to their investigation and hopefully we should hear from them soon regarding a fix for this."


A fix is coming soon folks - thank you Salesforce for jumping on this quickly!  I will continue to update if any new info comes up.

This is day 3 and it has stopped us from all flow development and testing.
