Job hangs trying to resolve Perforce emails, in a non-perforce job

      Description

      We upgraded from Jenkins 1.445 to 1.565, and we have a number of jobs configured for subversion, and some configured for perforce.

      This one job in particular, failed (after I had to kill the p4 executable on the build agent, and then ultimately the build agent itself) when it tried to generate an email list to send emails out. It appears to be attempting to get users emails from perforce, even though this one job in particular is in no way configured to use Perforce.

      ERROR: Publisher hudson.tasks.Mailer aborted due to exception

      Only once I had disabled the Perforce plugin entirely, would the job complete without hanging.

          In addition, the mailer plugin shouldn't let a problem in MailAddressResolver affect the caller.

          I will take snapshots of the build machine and master and test these out on Monday, rolling back to the previous build and attempt to roll individual plugins forward to eek out what caused the problem.

          Alas, time and tide waits for no man, neither do companies. I was unable to dedicate time towards this, and our configuration has moved on beyond this where we no longer have Perforce jobs configured.

          As I am unable to assist any further (and I'm the reporter) I'm happy to close the issue as Won't Do.
