      We have encountered problems when using File parameter in our jobs.

      How to reproduce problem:
      1) create job
      2) mark "This build is parametrized"
      2a) Add Parameter - File Parameter
      2b) File location - "data.file"
      2c) description - "plik"
      3) Build
      3a) Add build step - Execute shell:
      ls -la
      mv data.file data.zip
      sleep 10
      rm *
      4) trigger new job and use big *.zip file as parameter (~150MB)

      During file upload on master in /tmp directory new file will be created - for example "upload_6e074d3b_136c03af218__8000_00000013.tmp".
      When job finish this *.tmp file usually is deleted automatically - and here our problems are starting.
      In build.xml additional note is added:
      <file class="org.apache.commons.fileupload.disk.DiskFileItem" serialization="custom">
      When we are restarting jenkins it is not able to read this jobs because this temporary file do not exists - job history is not visible from Jenkins but builds exists on machine. Error message after Jenkins restart:
      Caused by: com.thoughtworks.xstream.converters.ConversionException: Could not call org.apache.commons.fileupload.disk.DiskFileItem.readObject() : /tmp/upload_6e074d3b_136c03af218__8000_00000013.tmp (No such file or directory)

      Could you please help to check this?
