    Description

      currentBuild.getBuildCauses(type) was added in 2.22 which seems to work for Jenkins built-in causes but fails when trying to look-up causes contributed by plugins.

      Example - replay after building first time with failure to see echo'd output shown below:

      echo "${currentBuild.buildCauses}"
      currentBuild.getBuildCauses('org.jenkinsci.plugins.workflow.cps.replay.ReplayCause')
      

      Fails with: 

      [Pipeline] echo
      [[_class:hudson.model.Cause$UserIdCause, shortDescription:Started by user anonymous, userId:null, userName:anonymous], [_class:org.jenkinsci.plugins.workflow.cps.replay.ReplayCause, shortDescription:Replayed #9]]
      [Pipeline] End of Pipeline
      java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.jenkinsci.plugins.workflow.cps.replay.ReplayCause

              ...

       My presumption is that it is not using the correct classloader.
