I'm getting the following error, when trying to do an org-capture. 

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Invalid file location: nil")
  signal(error ("Invalid file location: nil"))
  error("Invalid file location: %S" nil)
  org-capture-expand-file((concat org-directory "inbox-gtd.org"))
  org-capture-target-buffer((concat org-directory "inbox-gtd.org"))

My org-capture-templates is set as follows for ages: 
(setq org-capture-templates
      '(("t" "Todo" entry (file+headline  (concat org-directory 
"inbox-gtd.org") "Tasks")
         "* TODO %?\n  %i\n  %a")

org-directory: "/Users/hrizvi/Google Drive/MyDocs/org/"

With a fully qualified file-name, it works fine:

(setq org-capture-templates
      '(("t" "Todo" entry (file+headline  "/Users/hrizvi/Google 
Drive/MyDocs/org/inbox-gtd.org" "Tasks")
         "* TODO %?\n  %i\n  %a")

Reading up org-capture-expand-file, it seems org-directory is
prepended automatically, but it used to work fine in the
past. Flipping back to the older code for org-capture-expand-file
works fine. So I'd say this is a bug!
