Null pointer exception when trying to create new postgis datastore

Description

Seems to be that any postgis datastore that I try to enter gives me the same error. I'm currently using parameters of:
DataStore ID local
Enabled: checked
Namespace cdf
Description mine
host localhost
port 5432
database dcmms
user postgres
passwd postgres
charset utf-8

Then I get this:

http://localhost:8080/geoserver/DataConfigDataStoresSubmit.do - http://localhost:8080/geoserver/DataConfigDataStoresSubmit.do

500 Servlet Exception

java.lang.NullPointerException
