Workaround

If this issue is impacting performance on the instance - due to the log being polluted with tons of WARNINGS - you can change the log level of hudson.model.RunMap to SEVERE so that only SEVERE errors are logged for that class in the Jenkins logs. You can do this under Manage Jenkins > Script Console > Log Levels. See for example:

Note: This will not persist upon restart.
