      Description

      In order to reproduce do the following steps:

      • Create a new buildplan (free-style project)
      • Source code managment: select a subversion path (doesn't matter which, just something your can check out)
      • Set the Check-out strategy to 'Always check out a fresh copy'
      • Add a 'execute shell' build script and enter the following commands:
      mkdir -p a/b/c/d/e
      mkdir -p a/b/c/d/f
      touch a/b/c/d/e/1
      touch a/b/c/d/e/2
      touch a/b/c/d/f/1
      touch a/b/c/d/f/2
      ln -s ../../../../../a/b/c/d/f/1 a/b/c/d/e/4
      ln -s ../../../../../a/b/c/d/f/2 a/b/c/d/e/5
      ln -s ../../../../../a/b/c/d/e/1 a/b/c/d/f/4
      ln -s ../../../../../a/b/c/d/e/2 a/b/c/d/f/5
      chmod -R 555 a
      chmod 444 a/b/c/d/e/*
      chmod 444 a/b/c/d/f/*
      

      Now if you launch this job, this results in the following pattern: success, fail, success, fail, ... the reason for this pattern does not immediately make sense

      Where a fail contains the following log:

      This happens both on builds running locally as builds executed on a buildslave. Since this sometimes succeeds, this is not linked with a unix permission issue. Also, if the symlinks do not point to valid destinations then this doesn't change the story either.

      Now after a successful run the path looks like (excluding the svn checkout):

      After the failed build, it looks like this on the os:

      So it managed to clean 'something' and this something is enough to make it succeed the next time.

      (Note, while experimenting, I've also been able to create success, fail, fail, success, fail, fail, ... patterns, I've also seen this happen when the symlinks are not valid something (e.g. omit the ../../../../'s) but since on one of my projects it failed with a symlink I introduced this in my testcase).
