Error in Groovy script email sending

I'm getting the following error in the log when I try to send an email using the built in script runner 'send a custom email' as a test:

This widget could not be displayed.

As it says, it's a bug ;-) It should only happen in the admin screens, not when it's actually configured as a workflow function or listener.

Fair enough... It's just weird because it's definitely worked before and I don't know what changed.

It happens when you preview, there's an error, you preview again, something like that.

So, okay, the error is only supposed to occur when I'm previewing.. but thats the error I get when I run it. I don't actually get the error on preview.
