Error description

  • Customer is running RPT from the command line and then opening
    the reports in the workbench and exporting the report counter to
    a CSV file.  They regularly observe that one or more rows at the
    beginning of the of the data will have "-" instead of a number
    in the Time column.  For example, the following shows one bad
    row and one good row:
    
    -             99.95061  99.9833  99.9765 ...
    15012             100          100          100 ...
    
    The problem is not necessarily related to playback via command
    line; it's been seen with playbacks from the workbench; it seems
    more likely when using the command line and including a comment
    (via -usercomments).
    
    In some cases, the - rows are otherwise valid data that have -
    instead of a time -- you can tell this because there is a gap in
    the times in the other rows.
