Consider two jobs A, B. Job A archives/clones some workspace files. Job B uses the CloneWorkspaceSCM component to restore workspace of A.
The bug occurs if you switch the archive type of A leading to an IOException, when B tries to unpack the workspace archive.
If you manually rename the archive filename to the prior archive type extension (ie. tar.gz -> zip) on the master node, job B does not complain.
Please let me know, if you need further informations to resolve this issue.
