Error description

  • When you are working in an IBM Rational ClearCase Team Explorer
    (CTE) dynamic view and have checked out a file unreserved, you
    will see a message stating that the file requires a merge as it
    is not the latest version of the file if a user has also checked
    in the same file in a different view.  This is expected
    behavior.
    
    However, in the message it will incorrectly show that you are
    the user that had checked in the previous version of the file
