Error description

  • If you attempt to follow a link from the history entry for link
    creation, and that history entry exists in a baseline, and there
    is no history in the current version for the object, a DXL error
    will be given.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - create a module containing some objects
     - create a link between 2 of the objects
     - save the module and create a baseline
     - right-click on the source object and select Properties
     - in the objects properties dialog select the history tab
     - click <Load Previous> to load the baseline history
     - select the history entry for the link creation then click
    <Goto Target Object>
    
    The error given in the v9.6.1.11 client is:
    
    "
    -R-E- DXL: <standard/history/historyTab.inc:2264> unassigned
    variable (h)
    Backtrace:
    	<standard/history/historyTab.inc:2264>
    	<standard/object/properties.dxl:628>
    	<standard/history/historyTab.inc:2264>
    	<standard/object/properties.dxl:628>
    "
    
    Workaround:
    
    Manual link navigation will be possible.
    Or, as soon as a history entry exists in the current version for
    the object the problem no longer happens.
