    .sbs file crashes Rhapsody and DiffMerge. Corruption seems
    to be a result of merge.
    

Problem conclusion

  • We were not able to understand or reproduce the cause of the
    corruption.
    The corrupted .sbs contains self hierarchy of graphical
    elements that caused Rational Rhapsody to crash.
    To avoid the crash we have added a graphical hierarchy
    validity check that is activated on model load.
    The  validity check identifies such incidents and breaks the
    self hierarchy to prevent Rational Rhapsody from crashing.
    but than diagram will have some corruption in sense of
    misplaced elements.
