I've moved this over to the JDG project - a low priority request about a possible bug in JDG and JSD does not offer an option to directly open into this project. I will attach the catalina.out from the instance in a minute.
I am having the same problem in a Jira 7.12 DC environment.
Same issue on Jira Server 7.13 .
