Jobs don't find "hg" executable after reloading "Configuration as Code"


      We just switched to Jenkins Configuration as Code to have our configuration changes under version control. However after (re-)loading the the configuration, jobs which have configured Mercurial as their SCM don't find the Mercurial executable anymore, emitting the following error:

      java.io.IOException: Cannot determine tool home for MercurialInstallation[Mercurial]
      	at hudson.plugins.mercurial.HgExe.findHgExe(HgExe.java:206)
      	at hudson.plugins.mercurial.HgExe.<init>(HgExe.java:112)

      	at hudson.model.ResourceController.execute(ResourceController.java:99)
      	at hudson.model.Executor.run(Executor.java:432)

      The issue is resolved after simply opening "Global Tool Configuration" and hitting the "Save" button there (without doing any modification). However, reloading CasC brings it back again.

      The configuration has been exported from a running Jenkins and is re-imported unmodified. It looks like this:

          - config: |-
              clone = --uncompressed
            debug: false
            executable: "hg"
            name: "Mercurial"
            useCaches: true
            useSharing: false

      I could reproduce this on Jenkins 2.263.1 with JCasC 1.54 and Mercurial 2.12 as well as Jenkins 2.319.1 with JCasC 1.55 and Mercurial 2.16 running jobs on Windows and Linux agents and on the controller (Linux).
