      Description

      It seems that Jenkins inserts a VerticalTAB character sequence in long lines in the Job description display in the Build History.

      Since a common workflow is to cut-and-paste a value from the Description into the input of another job, we had to installed a snippet of shell script to strip out those characters.

      The fix should either be that the Description doesn't get those invisible characters inserted, or that Job input parameters should strip the characters.

      $ echo -n "123456789-0" | od -ac
      0000000   1   2   3   4   5   b nul  vt   6   7   8   9   -   0
                1   2   3   4   5 342 200 213   6   7   8   9   -   0
