Hi Roy,

I believe this issue requires some indepth investigation. Can you please raise a support ticket with us at https://support.atlassian.com. Once you have created the ticket, attach your Bamboo server and agent logs as explained here: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Logging+in+Bamboo.

Just to update everyone, I still have this issue even after trying to work with support. The recommendation was to update to 5.x - and we are now on 5.2 and still experiencing it.

Anyone else???
