jira-python 0.13 fails to pull error message[s] from failed JIRA.create()

I am (very happily) using the JIRA Python package to access our JIRA, and, have found what looks like an error.

When I access the JIRA server, and have an error (user not in the developer role for that project, or new issue is missing required fields) the package crashes on pulling the error messages.

                    if isinstance(errorMessages, (list, tuple)):
                        error = errorMessages[0]
                        error = errorMessages

...this code blows up on the 2nd line, as errorMessages[] is empty. This is in the raise_on_error def in exceptions.

Whoops: the error output is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users\Greg CTR Sudderth\Desktop\Workspaces\Eclipse 4.2 Java EE\Create On Transition (DATA)\", line 49, in <module>
new_issue = jira.create_issue(project={'key': 'DATA'}, issuetype={'name': 'Data Service Request'})
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\jira\", line 369, in create_issue
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\jira\", line 29, in raise_on_error
error = errorMessages[0]
IndexError: list index out of range

..the end result is that the program crashes while trying to raise the exception.
