I have a chain of 6 jobs, the 1st of which is triggered by watching a Mercurial repo. Each job triggers the build of the downstream job on successful completion.
This works fine for the first 5 jobs. But if an SCM change comes in before the 6th job is to be built, I end up with jobs 1 and 6 deadlocked on each other. This only happens for the 6th (final) job.
Is this a know problem and/or is there a workaround?
