Creating task of type Test results in NPE

I want to create multiple test tasks to test different classes. However when I create a task of type Test and try to execute it fails with java.lang.NullPointerException (no error message). This is using gradlefx 1.1 and flexunit 4.1.
To test this, I took the flexunit-single-project from the gradlefx samples
and added the following task:

task runUnitTests (type: Test) {
println('running Unit Tests')

    You might want to specify the GradleFx package of the Test task, like this:

    task runUnitTests (type: org.gradlefx.tasks.Test) { 
      println('running Unit Tests')
