Error description

  • Problem
    If you create a view which contains layout code which first
    checks the default view for the module, then opens a baseline,
    DOORS will crash when loading the view.
    
    The message given when the crash ocurrs appears to vary
    according to platform and/or DOORS version.
    
    To Reproduce
     - create a baseline v0.1 in a module
     - add a layout column containing the following code and save it
    in a public view:
    
    '
    Module m = current
    
    getDefaultViewForModule(m)
    load (baseline (0, 1, ''), true)
    '
    
     - reopen the module and load the view
    
    Possible Workarounds
    In some cases, simply creating a new view, after the problem
    one, will allow it to load correctly.
