jenkins version 2.190.2
I tried to disable the WorkspaceLocatorImpl by setting the property jenkins.branch.WorkspaceLocatorImpl.MODE to DISABLED
to get a workaround for the issue
I assumed that the property disabled the class completely but the WorkspaceCollectorImpl.Collector class still gets called and tries to get a lock on the node which causes the issue
That was not my expected behaviour, I guess that either the property does not work correctly or the javadoc of the property needs some clarification.
