Error description

  • When using the IBM ClearCase GUI version tree browser on
    Windows, hovering over a version with an over-long comment or
    other metadata will cause the tooltip to flash on the screen.
    
    One example would be a directory that was checked in after
    adding a large number of files to source control. In that case,
    the default checkin comment would read:
    "Added element 'file1.txt'
     Added element 'file2.txt'
     ...
     Added element 'file100.txt'"
    
    If the number of lines in the comment would cause the tooltip to
    be taller than the screen, the tooltip will rapidly appear and
    disappear.
