I am using SharePoint online, I have created a Content Type in root web, based on Issue and added some extra custom Site Columns to it. In one of the sub webs I have created a Custom List and add my Contetnt type to it. Now when I try to modify the view and add Issue Id (Linked to item) field to the view, it generates following error.

Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator.

Make sure you are using the right base type for the list. For an issue tracking list, the list type is "issue", or BaseType="5".

I'm not sure how this works for SharePoint Online. But I have fixed the problem by changing following attribute values:
Type="1100" (found in elements.xml, change for both the list and listinstance)
BaseType="5" (found in elements.xml and schema.xml of the list )
Title="IssueList" (found in schema.xml of the list)
