Error description

  • When adding large numbers of files to source control, some files
    may appear to "disappear" from the view directory being added to
    source control. Examination of the issue showed that, under some
    conditions, the checkout of a parent directory of the files
    being added to source control is undone instead of a checkin
    being performed. This causes the objects to be moved to the
    VOB's lost+found directory instead.
