Jira Suite Utilities "Required Fields" validator throwing required error for "Original Estimate" field when a value has been provided

I'm running Jira v5.3.7#850 and Suite Utilities v1.3.5 plugin. I'm using the "Required Fields" validator to make certain fields required for a particular screen (like most everyone else). I've used this validator in my trainsitions several times with no issues however when I use it on the "Original Estimate" field that comes as part of Time Tracking in Jira Agile, the validator fails even though a value has been provided. Any ideas as to why this is happening and how I can resolve it?

Thank you for the very complete answer, it's unfortunate that there are no plans to address this issues seemingly anywhere. I wouldn't have this issue in the first place if Jira supported required fields on a per screen basis... the only work around I can see for this is to make create a custom field that is only on the ticket creation screen, make that required (using JSU worflow validator) and then using a post function to copy those values into the Orginial Estimate field. If anyone has a better idea/approach, I'm all ears.
