Error description

  • ClearTeam Explorer can produce the following error when
    attempting a directory merge when in a webview:
    "As a result of a directory merge operation, one or more
    resources, requiring a merge, have been removed"
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1) On "stream1", add to source control a directory containing
    one binary file element
    2) Create a baseline and rebase child stream "stream2" from it
    3) On "stream2", add a second binary file to source control in
    the same directory
    4) Start ClearTeam Explorer Merge Search and merge from
    "stream2" to "stream1" (Trivial merge)
    5) Accept the default options.
    6) The wrong merge result and the error will be returned.
