      Description

      Minimal script to reproduce the issue:

      #!/usr/bin/env groovy
      
      class Example {
      
          void method(String... args) {
          }
      
          static void method(List<String> args, File workDirectory, Appendable out, Appendable err) {
          }
      
          void execute() {
              method("a", "b", "c", "d")
