Error description

  • When using the IBM Rational ClearCase and Cadence integration if
    there is an empty hidden directory exists in the Cadence oa
    library directory, it will cause a "Show File Status..." crash
    at library level.
    
    If the empty directory is visible then a warning is seen and the
    GUI is started correctly.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    Make the hidden empty directory visible.
