      Description

      Hello Hudson folks,

      first of all: Really great work! Hudson really helps me getting some automation work done in a chaotic project.
      But I've found an annoying and data eating bug.

      Problem: If I create a new job or modify an existing job right after Hudson's startup everything is fine.
      Buf if I modify or create a job and then try to modfiy the same job a second time, hudson displays an "Status Code: 500" page and all changes I've made are lost. It does not have any influence if I modify other jobs in the meantime.

      Workaround: If I restart Hudson or use the "copy existing job" functinality I have "one modification free". But I cannot restart Hudson everytime I need to make an modification to an job or loose all job history by copy and rename a job I have to modify.

      Interessting observation: If I try and delte a job, I'll get the same "Status Code: 500" page. But if I press the "one page back" button in my browser the job is marked as inactive and another try will delete the job.

      The main part of the stack trace seems to me (whole message attached):

            Hudson-6595 seems to have the same problem when running a job. Maybe this is a duplicate?

            disable envfile plugin until its next release comes out.

            We are encountering a very similar issue after having upgraded from Jenkins v1.446 to v1.478
            Tried to reference the link provided by ssplett but it appears the server for that reference is offline at this time. Does anyone have an alternate reference we can use to help resolve this issue?

            Thanks.
