    ****************************************************************
    Both ClearQuest Designers crash during validation if a
    choice list's default value is invalid.  Example:  Create a
    short string field and make it a CHOICE_LIST.  Put the
    values x and y and set it to "Limit to list".  Setting the
    default value of the short string field to a blank space
    will cause a crash.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.5.
    
    When the default value of a choice list is invalid, the
    designer now displays a message saying the "The hook must
    consist of only a single value..."
