      Description

      I'm relatively new to Hudson. There is a particular job that would fail out with the below shown exception but the other jobs would not. This happens with a hit rate of 100% and not an one-off issue. I fear it could be due to a erroneous string parsing while going through the output of 'p4 describe'. If I change the "last changelist to track' to the latest changelist so as to avoid a lot of 'p4 describe' tasks and as expected it just goes through fine.
      If the above speculaion is true then is there a way to track down using hudson logs(where would this be?) on which string does this happen?
