Simple scripted validator does not work with Issue Collector

We have 2 simple scripted validators applied to a workflow when you create a new request. One of the validators just checks to make sure that the Priority is set to "Critical" or "High", and the other checks a cascading select to make sure the user puts a value in both the first field and the cascaded field. Works perfect when creating the issue through the JIRA application.

We then created an Issue Collector for that project. Whenever someone trys to submit an issue that fails one or more of those validators, we get a null pointer in the logs and the user gets an error message (and no issue is ever created). The null pointer is as follows. Any help is greatly apprecated!

WARNING: A servlet POST request, to the URI https://mycompany.com/rest/collectors/1.0/template/custom/e15c6dfa, contains form parameters in the request body but the request body has been consumed by the servlet or a servlet filter accessing the request parameters. Only resource methods using @FormParam will work as expected. Resource methods consuming the request body by other means will not work as expected.
