Error description

  • In Test Factory, in some circumstances choosing a new test in
    the Task Monitor after closing the Message Differences Window
    will result in results from another task to be displayed in the
    Console window
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create several test cases with a request/response and execute
    them.
    Executed test cases will be listed in Task Monitor area of the
    Test Lab module.
    
    2. Click on a test case (test case A) in the Task Monitor area.
    Note the test case A will be highlighted.
    
    3. Click on a log from the console area to launch comparator
    window.
    
    4. Close the Message Differences Window by clicking on the [X]
    in the upper right corner of window
    
    5. While the Message Differences Window is closing, click on a
    different test case (test case B).
    
    6. Test case B will be highlighted in the Task Monitor area
    
    7. Check the test case name displayed in the Console area
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    At step 7, Console will display log for test case B
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    At step 7, Console displays log for test case A.  When theTest
    Case B is selected in the Tast Monitor area,  the log displayed
    in the Console area is for A.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Wait for the Message Differences Window to completely close
    before selecting a new test in the Task Monitor window
