Error description

  • When using '.bset server' to change the build server for the
    project build step, only the first iteration under while loop
    step will honor the '.bset server' (also '.bset buildserver)
    change.
    All other iterations of the while loop step will use the project
    selector to chose the server to run under.
    The following build step will honor the '.bset server' server
    change.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    - Create test project 'Test' with selector using serverX.
    - Create normal type step 1 with '.bset server serverY' command.
    - Create while loop type step 2 with condition '1==1', command
    'echo hello', and 'Max Iterations' set to 5.
    - Run the project builds.
    
    Expected result:
    
    Build step 1 executes under serverX.
    Build step 2 5 iterations all run under serverY.
    
    Actual result:
    
    Build step 1 executes under serverX.
    Build step 2 1st iterations all run under serverY.
    Build step 2 iterations 2 through 5 all run under serverX.
    
    Workaround:
    
    Configured selector serverY, selectorY, and used with '.bset
    selector selectorY' command to alter the build server.
    Build while loop type steps will honor '.bset selector'.
