SIL syntax works but fails on issue create

Hi there. I am trying to create some SIL to check if a user is in a group and set the priority of a request accordingly. See below.

if ( userInGroup("VIPs", reporter) ) {
priority = "Major";


The syntax checks out ok, and I thought I'd used something similar previously to check based on groups, however. I've set the group "VIPs" up, and included myself only in the group, then gone to created, and receive the below error.

Error creating issue: Exception while executing SIL program >>VIPs<

I have a very similar problem, have you resolved this? 

Also, where do you get the error? You said the syntax checks out ok, is this in the logs?
