Confluence Task Report Macro - Cannot change task states

Users are reporting they are unable to change status of tasks on pages using the Task Status Macro

When changing the status of a task the server log file includes the error :-

[atlassian.confluence.event.ConfluenceEventDispatcher] run there wan an exception thrown when trying to dispatch event [ConfluenceTaskUpdateEvent

further down the stack trace is a NullPointerException thrown in :-

We are running Confluence Server Data Centre Version 6.13.4 

Has anybody else experienced this problem?

Many Thanks

I'm having the exact same problem in Confluence Server 6.13.4

The task status can only be changed by clicking on it twice, the first time often fails.
