      Description

      Since upgrading Jenkins to version 1.470, sources are checked out into folder <workspace>/<module name>. Before (v1.457), the folder <module name> was not created.

      This broke all our jobs due to artifact archiving and build configuration. We already used CVS plugin 2.4 for at least one week without problems, before updating Jenkins from 1.457 to 1.470.

      Since the update option Legacy Mode is enabled for all jobs by default and cannot be disabled. When trying to disable the selection box and saving the configuration, it jumps back to enabled. Tested in Firefox 12.0 and Internet Explorer 8. The option was not enabled before the update.

      CVS configuration after the update:

      <scm class="hudson.scm.CVSSCM">
      <flatten>false</flatten>
      <repositories>
      <hudson.scm.CvsRepository>
      <cvsRoot>:pserver:user@host:/path</cvsRoot>
      <repositoryItems>
      <hudson.scm.CvsRepositoryItem>
      <modules>
      <hudson.scm.CvsModule>
      <localName></localName>
      <remoteName>module_name</remoteName>
      </hudson.scm.CvsModule>
      </modules>
      <location class="hudson.scm.CvsRepositoryLocation$HeadRepositoryLocation">
      <locationType>HEAD</locationType>
      <useHeadIfNotFound>false</useHeadIfNotFound>
      </location>
      </hudson.scm.CvsRepositoryItem>
      </repositoryItems>
      <compressionLevel>-1</compressionLevel>

      <hudson.scm.ExcludedRegion>
      <pattern></pattern>
      </hudson.scm.ExcludedRegion>
      </excludedRegions>
      <password>secret</password>
      <passwordRequired>true</passwordRequired>
      </hudson.scm.CvsRepository>
      </repositories>
      <canUseUpdate>false</canUseUpdate>
      <skipChangeLog>false</skipChangeLog>
      <pruneEmptyDirectories>true</pruneEmptyDirectories>
      <disableCvsQuiet>false</disableCvsQuiet>
      <cleanOnFailedUpdate>false</cleanOnFailedUpdate>
      </scm>

      Before:

      <scm class="hudson.scm.CVSSCM">
      <flatten>true</flatten>
      <repositories>
      <hudson.scm.CvsRepository>
      <cvsRoot>:pserver:user@host:/path</cvsRoot>
      <modules>
      <hudson.scm.CvsModule>
      <localName></localName>
      <remoteName>module_name</remoteName>
      <moduleLocation class="hudson.scm.CvsModuleLocation$HeadModuleLocation">
      <locationType>HEAD</locationType>
      <useHeadIfNotFound>false</useHeadIfNotFound>
      </moduleLocation>
      </hudson.scm.CvsModule>
      </modules>
      <compressionLevel>-1</compressionLevel>
      <excludedRegions>
      <hudson.scm.ExcludedRegion>
      <pattern></pattern>
      </hudson.scm.ExcludedRegion>
      </excludedRegions>
      <password>secret</password>
      <passwordRequired>true</passwordRequired>
      </hudson.scm.CvsRepository>
      </repositories>
      <canUseUpdate>false</canUseUpdate>
      <skipChangeLog>false</skipChangeLog>
      <pruneEmptyDirectories>true</pruneEmptyDirectories>
      <disableCvsQuiet>false</disableCvsQuiet>
      <cleanOnFailedUpdate>false</cleanOnFailedUpdate>
      </scm>

      I have not tried to set flatten back to true directly in config.xml. To solve the problem locally, I have updated all affected job configurations to include the <module_name> folder in paths where necessary.
