Anyone else seeing unexpected “System.LimitException: Apex CPU time limit exceeded” in previously working code?

In the last 24 hours several of our Jenkins (Continuous Integration server) builds have started failing with:

System.LimitException: Apex CPU time limit exceeded

exceptions in unit tests that have been passing for many months. It is as if the limit counting has changed in some manner.

Anyone else experiencing this, or have an insight into what is going on?


Salesforce support have confirmed that the “Apex CPU time limit exceeded” was caused from a patch that they applied and have since rolled back. This issue would of affected dev orgs, sandboxes and production instances.

There was no Known Issue created for this problem.
