Storage Crawler error: "An event was unable to invoke any of the subscribers"

The error occurs when Enterprise Vault tries to create a preview of the item along with an index for the item's content. Even when this error occurs, the item has been stored.  The restore also completes as expected. Affected areas are limited to preview and search for contents. Search for properties (example. search for item's date) should work as expected.
