I probably have the same issue though under two different conditions when the timestamper is active:
- either in the tables of the warnings plugin where it puts that random garbage into all filenames
JENKINS-7417 for the Warnings plugin.
- when looking at the console output of a long session. At first, Hudson cuts off the beginning and only shows the end. The garbage is then at the start of the page. If you click the button to display everything, the garbage is gone.
capn_carrot, please raise a new issue for this and include:
- The version of Hudson you have installed.
- The console line that is being displayed incorrectly, and the surrounding lines.
What I found striking is the fact that the garbage always started with Escape + [ + number + reallyRandomStuff.
You don't see it in the original mail but it was visible in my browser as replacement character 001B. Escape + [ + moreAsciiData is typically used to control terminals. So maybe it is some leftover from some function to control a virtual console within hudson?
This problem existed since timestamper v1.0 and is reproducibly away if timestamper is off.
They are console notes, which are used to annotate the console output by the Timestamper plugin and also by Hudson itself. Hudson uses them to mark up Ant targets and to display internal errors.
The Timestamper plugin is working as expected, but exposes bugs in other plugins which have not been updated to handle console notes.
