Error description

  • IBM Rational ClearCase Clearimport can be used to import
    existing elements and metadata from one VOB to another after
    exporting with clearexport_ccase. In certain conditions the
    import will core on Oracle Solaris when processing an attribute
    with multiple lines including carriage returns.
    
    Steps to reproduce: The exact conditions that cause the core are
    unknown.
    
    Workarounds: The problem can be avoided in some cases by
    removing the carriage returns from the multiline attributes in
    the cvt file generated by clearexport_ccase. If this does not
    help, removing the attribute lines entirely from the cvt file
    should allow the import to proceed and the attributes can be add
    manually afterward.
