Error description

  • When addint a file to source control in a replicated VOB using
    the IBM Rational ClearCase Explorer, the operation may silently
    fail if:
    - one or more of the branch types being created for the element
    are not locally mastered
    - The '... make the current replica the master of all newly
    created branches.' option is enabled.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    - Create a New VOB
    - Create a new view with the default configspec.
    - Create a new replica of this VOB using mt mkreplica -out.
    Replica creation packet can be removed as it is not needed for
    the future steps.
    - Use mt chmaster -all to move all object mastership to the new
    replica.
    - Run cleardlg /options to set 'Prompt for comments' and '...
    make the current replica the master...'
    - CD into a directory in this VOB.
    - Create a new brtype, and change the current view's configspec
    to use it.
    - create a view private file -- MakeMe.txt
    - run cleardlg /addtosrc MakeMe.txt
    - Observe:
       - You may get prompted for comments
       - Add to source progress bar flashes on the display.
       - File is still view private.
       - DIRECTORY was checked out and back in, making the new
    branch on the directory.
    
    Workaround: Use 'cleartool mkelem' on the command line, or use
    the ClearTeam Explorer, which do not experience this issue.
