[platform-ui-dev] API change to Job.setSystem and Job.setUser

If you are using the platform concurrency infrastructure (, read on.  Others, please disregard.

I have made an API change to the methods Job.setSystem() and Job.setUser(). These methods must now only be called BEFORE the job is scheduled. If you change these values after the job is scheduled or while it is running, they will fail. This was causing refresh problems in the UI (jobs showing in the progress view when no longer running, or running jobs not appearing in the progress view). We have been entering individual bug reports for the places where we have found this occurring, but implementors of system jobs should also double-check that they are not doing this.  This change will be released for the next integration build.
