Given the way copying works, this is bit unlikely.
I suspect this is an UI issue — ANT_OPTS is hidden in the "advanced" menu. Can
You're right, it's not the copying, it's the saving of AND_OPTS itself that
seems to be broken.
If I create a new job, or edit an existing one, and add the ANT_OPTS value then
Save, then go back to the job configuration, the value is gone.
It seems that the ANT_OPTS value is persisted fine in config.xml, but the GUI
doesn't pick it up when you go back to edit the job configuration.
Fixed in 1.104.
