Error description

  • Hovering over the viewlist in the views drop-down of a module
    will cause the selection to jump to the top if the view has a
    big name which exceeds the width of the drop-down box.
    
    This issue is only seen when using 'Windows Classic theme' on
    the Windows operating system.
    
    Steps to reproduce.
    -------------------
    
    1. Ensure the 'Windows Classic theme' is selected for the
    operating system.
    
    2. Open a module in DOORS which has views with names exceeding
    the width of the view drop-down box.
    
    3. Click on the views drop-down and hover over a view name which
    exceeds the width of the drop-down.
    
    4. A pop up (info balloon) will appear to show the fullname of
    the view and immediately the selection will jump to the first
    view in the drop-down.
