Please! This addon is not distributed with blender, so no report about it should be on our tracker.

I might have had similar problem with creaPrim addon (the same error). A new notation for location solved my issue:

old one: bpy.types.VIEW3D_PT_tools_objectmode.append(panel_ func)
new one: bpy.types.VIEW3D_PT_tools_object.append(panel_func )
better: bpy.types.VIEW3D_PT_tools_add_object.append(panel_func)

as stated in here:

Working perfectly.

Thanks

BTW: Later on I have noticed that the "better:" solution performed the script without an error, but also without desired effect in Blender. The "new one:" solution worked as desired.
(Don't know the reason, I am new in Blender as well as Python)
