Error description

  • With RDS in use, when an empty filter is specified in the groups

    specified in the groups tab, opening the dialog will result in
    DXL and diagnostic log errors.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - setup RDS in local mode and setup your database to use it
     - open the Manage Users dialog and specify a '*' filter in the
    users tab and an empty string in the groups tab.
     - re-open the dialog
    
    To Workaround:
