Error description

  • In IBM Developer for z Systems V14.1.2,
    When using -nl de_DE to start IDz client, the debug does not
    quite work correctly.
    In this case the program flow diagram is
    drawn on program entry and debugging is possible on source code
    level.
    However the nodes are not colored in the diagram as the program
    is stepped through.
    It is also not possible to insert stack pattern breakpoints.
    
    The Eclipse log shows the following exception:
    
    java.lang.NullPointerException
        at
    com.ibm.systemz.common.jface.editor.SequenceNumberAutoEditStrate
    gy.customizeDocumentCommand(SequenceNumberAutoEditStrategy.java:
    203)
