NullPointerException cant start any macro

Hi all,
Till yesterday I was able to just do “Plugin–>new–>macro” and get the editor to create new macros. Since yesterday though, after I updated Fiji (including for first time from Java-8 site), I get the following error message :

java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.scijava.ui.swing.script.TextEditor.initializeTokenMakers(TextEditor.java:866)

The details of my setup : ImageJ 2.0.0-rc-69/1.52p; Java 1.8.0_66 [64-bit]; Linux 2.6.32-754.18.2.el6.x86_64

Somehow the texteditor causes this I assume and its definetly related to the last update.
Any help ?
Thanks!

UPDATE: AND i can not quit ImageJ as well…it gives again Null pointer error…
