Error description

  • In the IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer, the 'Show Version Tree'
    and 'Show History' options for dynamic views produce blank
    windows when ClearTeam Explorer is invoked from a setview
    context.
    
    Steps to reproduce the issue:
    
    1) On a linux or unix system, set to a dynamic view with
    'cleartool setview ?view?'.
    
    2) From the same setview context, launch ClearTeam Explorer
    (/opt/ibm/RationalSDLC/clearcase/RemoteClient/ctexplorer).
    
    3) Select an existing dynamic view in ClearTeam Explorer and
    navigate down to a file element.
    
    4) Right-click the element and select 'Show Version Tree' or
    'Show History'.  The display window will be blank.
    
    
    Workaround:
    
    Do not launch ClearTeam Explorer within a setview context.
