Attach Screenshot is not functional, window closes and throws a null pointer exception

When a user selects the Attach Screenshot action in an issue in JIRA, the capture window will appear as expected. Pasting the captured screen shot in to the window from the clipboard works fine, the user then adds a comment and presses the attach button.

* No error messages are displayed to the user.

* The window will close (as expected)

* There is the following error logged (See below)

* No attachment is added to the issue.

* No comment is added to the issue.

* No activity is added to the issue.

The window just closes. I have tried refreshing the issue on the browser to see if it is just a refresh problem, still no attachment, comment, or activity logged to the issue.

I have had users log this issue with our help desk using Windows XP and Windows 7.

*JIRA*: Version v5.0.4#731-sha1:3aa7374

*Browsers*: IE8, IE9, Chrome

I did find some issues already filed but none of them offer a resolution or explanation.

Plugin whoslooking (version 2.0) was having problems with JIRA 5.0.4.

Upgrading plugin to latest version (and JIRA since plugin version 2.1 is compatible with JIRA 5.0.7 - 5.1.3) fixes the problem.
