Completion suggester throws exception in ES1.4.1

I want to upgrade from ES 1.0.2 and just tried ES1.4.1 but completion
suggester throws exception:

Caused by: java.lang.ClassCastException:
org.elasticsearch.index.mapper.core.StringFieldMapper cannot be cast to

This works in ES1.0.2 like a charm.

Request was:
curl -X POST 'http://localhost:9200/music/_suggest?pretty' -d '{
"query": {
"text": "dan",
"completion": {
"size": 9,
"field": "textsug",
"fuzzy": {
"fuzziness": 1

Any idea why this has been mucked up in ES1.4.1?
May be there is an deeper case behind it.
