I'm a newer mac user, so I didn't even think about looking at the console.log, but that was all I needed to figure it out.

The problem was that the s3service.default-bucket-location property was being set to null, and the underlying data structure is a Hashtable, so it throws a NullPointerException when it gets set.

I'll go ahead and attach a patch as well.
