Error description

  • When using the IBM Rational ClearCase UCM integration with
    Clearquest on Linux, clicking on the "show change set" button
    using the ClearQuest Eclipse GUI fails. Investigation using the
    shell shows that the following error occurs:
    
    ERRORS: opt/rational/clearcase/bin/squidtool Free() invlaid next
    size (fast)
    opt/IBM/RationalSDLC/clearcase/shlib/libratracks.so
    
    You may also see a double-free failure.
    
    Setting MALLOC_CHECK=1 shows that the cleardescribe command line
    is garbled.
