Error description

  • DiffMerge detects an incorrect change on DiagramFrame using the
    new XML file format.
    
    Firstly Rhapsody 8.3 ifix2 was used to migrate the file format
    from sbs to sbsx, then a change was triggered by changing the
    description of a package (which is a separate unit file).
    When comparing afterwards sbs and sbsx files, DiffMerge detects
    a change (which isn't really there) in every Diagram Frame
    inside the unit (however the diagram names have not changed, see
    screenshot).
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1. Open the attached sbs and sbsx files as left and right in
    DiffMerge.
    2. Make sure that View -> Ignore Graphical Differences is
    disabled.
    3. Right click on a Use Case Diagram and select View All
    Diagrams.
    
    Result:
    
    There is a difference detected, even though none exists.
    
    Workaround:
    
    There is no known workaround.
