Environment:Jenkins v1.625.3 on Debian GNU/Linux 8.2.
Build blocker plugin 1.7.3
Build timeout plugin 1.15.1
Credentials plugins 1.24
Job Configuration History Plugin 2.12
+various other plugins that I can list if the problem is not related to the core or one of those.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a Freestyle project named
Mike's test job
and configure it to just run a shell command on a single node.
2. Run it once (at least that's what I did - it probably isn't necessary.)
3. Attempt to delete it using the "Delete Project" link on the left hand side of the job page at http://jenkins/job/Mike's%20test%20job/
A confirmation dialog box is displayed and then the job is deleted.
Nothing much happens. The URL in my address bar changes to http://jenkins/job/Mike's%20test%20job/# though. If I go back to the main Jenkins page I can still see my job listed.
I repeated the experiment using a job name that did contain spaces but not the quote character and was able to successfully delete the job. I conjecture that it's the quote character in the job name that is causing the problem.
