      I'm one of the developers for the Lucene plugin. As Lucene libraries are compiled using java 7 (since java 6 is deprecated) this bug causes all releases above 1.600 to be broken for us.

      Some history: in JDK 7 a new "feature" introduced was that the compiler has to keep a stack map. Any code compiled for java 1.6 is run in a compatibility mode, but all code compiled with target 1.7 needs to have this. More can be read here: http://chrononsystems.com/blog/java-7-design-flaw-leads-to-huge-backward-step-for-the-jvm

      What happens is that for some reason, that stack map becomes either corrupt or removed after applying commit https://github.com/jenkinsci/jenkins/commit/89681c20296c5f1c134039d2e24d434e1992437b causing java.lang.VerifyErrors (attached full stack, but excerpt below).

      Just to be clear. This has NOTHING to do with compiling jenkins with java 7. I have not tried that. I'm only interested in how the official builds interact with plugins requiring java 7 (it's because our required dependencies are only compiled for java 7).

      I have bisected by
      1) Added the lucene search plugin through normal plugin download
      2) Added a job
      3) Ran it
      4) Search for "user" or something else that is in the build log. Either I see the stack(bad) or the found jobs(good). I actually bisected the patch with the script "test.sh" attached, but it's clearly visible in both console and browser.

      This has been reproduced on other hosts and other jdk's as well.
