Error creating issues in linked JIRA for a code defect (Dragons exercise).

As part of Dragons stage 7 (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/ATLAS/Dragons+Stage+7+-+Get+JIRA+and+Crucible+Talking) A code review is created in Crucible (Step 2). Step 3 then creates a JIRA issue from that review.

In Step 3 - 6, instead of creating the issue in JIRA as expected, an error occurs instead. The error reads:

An error has occurred

Error

Error creating subtask in JIRA: Unknown error creating subtask for issue DRA-1: null

You are running release CR2.7.10 FE2.7.10 (20120119115142 2012-01-19)...

clicking reload on that error panel has no effect on the problem. Restarting FECru also does not.

There is an accompanying stacktrace in fisheye-debug-*.log - this stacktrace is the only logging that occurs when trying to create the issue (Apart from the slurping):

There is nothing of note in JIRA's catalina.*.log, but access_log.* contains (for each failed issue creation):
