Error description

  • When you are using linked resources with the IBM Rational
    ClearCase SCM adapter with Rational Software Architect, you may
    see a duplicate file entry to add to source in the linked
    resource.
    
    To reproduce the issue:
    
    1. Create project1 and add to source control.
    
    2. Create a directory called src in project 1 and add to source
    control
    
    3. Create project2 in the same workspace and add to source
    control
    
    4.Create a new folder called 'DIR' in project2  as a Linked
    Resource pointing to project1/src.  You need to click on
    Advanced ??tab in RSA.
    
    5. In the new folder DIR create a new text file and you will see
    the ClearCase window appearing with TWO entries for the new text
    file.
    
    Although the 2 entries are visible, only the correct one is
    added to source control.
