    Description

      Build completes satisfactorily, but NPE while triggering dependent builds. I upgraded to 1.623 to see if that resolved the fault, but the results are identical. The log shows only 4 of 10 builds triggered, but it may not have been flushed at the point of the fault. All builds are freestyle using multiple shell steps, with no Java or Groovy components or steps. This problem is 100% repeatable with certain builds.

      Tail of an example failing build:
