      Jenkins installed via 'apt-get install -y jenkins'

      For our environment it is required to load webapp into /var/cache/jenkins.
      With previous version (1.509.3) setting /etc/default/jenkins with:
      JENKINS_ARGS="--webroot=/var/cache/jenkins/war --httpPort=$HTTP_PORT --ajp13Port=$AJP_PORT"

      has always loaded webroot/webapp to this location.
      Installing the latest jenkins with 'apt-get install -y jenkins' using our existing /etc/default/jenkins file not passing the --webroot parameter/location. Starting Jenkins with /etc/init.d/jenkins start

      Jenkins:IIRC suggestions to use (command-line or /etc/default/jenkins):
      $ export JETTY_HOME=/var/cache/jenkins/war
      $ export JENKINS_HOME=/home/username/jenkins
      $ /usr/bin/java -Xmx512m -jar /usr/share/jenkins/jenkins-1.540.war --webroot=/var/cache/jenkins/war --httpPort=8080 --ajp13Port=-1

      However, it still continuously loads into: /tmp/jetty-

      INFO: Extract jar:file:/usr/share/jenkins/jenkins-1.540.war!/ to /tmp/jetty-

      Using previous 1.509.3 jenkins.war (and prior) versions does not have this behavior.

      Is this change by design?
      Can you please provide a workaround so we can specify --webroot or jetty_home, etc.?
