Jenkins doesn't start up when being installed as a Windows Service onto a network share.
How to reproduce:
1) run jenkins from local drive with java -jar jenkins.war
2) install as windows service and pick network location to install it to. e.g. \\abcd-ef\dfs\home\smadden\test
3) configure service to log on via user account
3) start service
4) war file will be exploded, but Jenkins throws an error message in the browser window and doesn't come up. One part says "Untrapped Error in Servlet java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: URI has an authority component at java.io.File.<init>(Unknown Source)" ... (The log files are attached to the issue.)
There is also an email thread about this issue in the users google groups. Title is "is JENKINS_HOME on a filer possible with windows?" http://groups.google.com/group/jenkinsci-users/browse_thread/thread/d96a8436c0f189a7
