Replacing Code Block Macro with Pre fails in some cases

In Confluence 6 in some cases following action return the error message:

Error while generating placeholder. Is the server available?


Click on a Code Block Macro

Click 'Edit'

Click 'Select Macro'

Search for 'Pre'

Click on the 'Pre' Macro

usually it replaces the Code Block with the Pre Macro and Insert  get's clickable.

In some cases the Preview window stay empty and the error message appears

(in Confluence 7 even the Error message does not appear)

Is this a known bug? Any clue what code in the Code Blocker macro can cause this?
