Error description

  • Problem
    When has more than one section locked and creates objects on
    those sections, unlocking only one section may cause duplicate
    absolute numbers to be created if a second client then locks the
    section which has just been unlocked. You need to be using
    client version 9203 or higher to reproduce this defect.
    
    To Reproduce
    - using client 9203 or higher, create a module with a simple
    structure, for example
    
    1.
    1.1
    2.
    2.1
    3.
    3.1
    
    - make 1, 2 and 3 sections and save the module. close.
    - with client A and B open the module in edit shareable mode
    - with client A, lock sections 1 and 2
    - with client C, lock section 3
    - with client A add objects to sections 1 and 2
    - with client A, unlock and save section 1
    - with client B, lock section 1
    - with client B, create some objects
    
    Now compare the module windows from client A and client B. You
    will see duplicate absolute numbers.
    
    Possible Workarounds
    Downgrade to 9202 client.

    cause duplicate absolute numbers to be created if a second
    client then locks the section which has just been unlocked.
