Error description

  • When comparing 2 models with DiffMerge tool you see a difference
    reported for a package in the browser tree. But no element with
    differences is shown.
    Reason is a trace dependency in abother package which belongs to
    a unresolved requirement which was originally located in the
    first package.
    defect:
    - a difference is shown in DiffMerge tool for 2 packages which
    are not different
    (workaround: diff the 2 packages separatly, which causes
    additional work)
    - the difference disappears when deleting a dependency in a
    totally other location of the model
    - there is no element shown which shows the difference, so you
    cannot rely on the diff/merge results.
