I just installed the build-timeout plugin and it's mostly working, but
even with the "Fail the build" setting checked, my builds are still
being marked as "aborted":
For example, here is the tail of the console output:
Build timed out (after 3 minutes). Marking the build as failed.
+++ vncserver -kill beast:3 -clean
Killing Xtightvnc process ID 12328
Note that it says it will fail the build, but then it is aborted and
the status of the build is set to aborted, not failed. Bonus pain:
Of course no email goes out.
This is with Jenkins ver. 1.404 and build-timeout ver. 1.7.
