GeoServer 2.7.1 fails to start after installing 11-Aug-2015 scripting extension


This problem does not appear to be version specific for me. I have tried this several times with different versions and different system configurations. As the title states, when I add the script extension to GeoServer it stops working. Any suggestions? I am running this on Debian 8.

Here is an excerpt from data/logs/geoserver.log:

The Python scripting extension works with version 2.4 from August 20, 2014, specifically this build of GeoServer with this build of the Python plugin.
