Error description

  • When executing a ClearCase Automation Library (CAL) application
    in a 9.0.1.x environment, the application may crash. A simple
    Perl application that gets all instances of a metadata type (for
    example, labels), crashes as well.
    
    This issue does not occur in ClearCase 8.0.1.x
