NoClassDefFoundError when using the html_strip char filter

The same config used to work on an older 1.3 version of ElasticSearch.


ElasticSearch 1.3.7 (installed from the apt repository) with the
mapper-attachment and marvel plugins enabled
java: OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.5.3)
OS: Ubuntu 14.04
