I believe this is an issue with your version.  We had a similar issue on 7.2.1.  I would recommend upgrading:

If this is not an option, try different browsers.  I found it happened in Chrome and not IE. 

Another trick is to copy and paste first names into the user picker field.  In my experience, the issue mostly had to do with looking up users by just one letter but more than one character didn't throw the error.
