Groovy Runner NPE "Cannot invoke method getJqlFunction() "


one of my favorite plug-ins is the Groovy Runner (Great Job Jamie!). Recently I do observe a consistent stack trace being thrown by something the Groovy Runner is doing:

2013-08-31 21:38:25,621 http-bio-8080-exec-18 ERROR michael.stump 1298x3612x9 m3xdea, /rest/gadget/1.0/favfilters [common.error.jersey.ThrowableExceptionMapper] Uncaught exception thrown by REST service

Does anyone had similar experiences?

Hi michael... I'm sure I know you from somewhere.

Is there any more to that stack trace? What version of script runner are you using?

The problem seems to originate somewhere in the favourite filters gadget... if there are not lots of filters, maybe you can click through them one by one and check that they all work.

If that doesn't help feel free to send me an xml backup to my gmail address.
