Nav: DSDP/TM | TM and RSE FAQ | TM 2.0 Testing | TM 2.0 Known Issues and Workarounds


This page lists the most obvious known issues with TM 2.0 and suggests workarounds. By "most obvious" we mean those issues that many users are likely to encounter. Note that there may be other severe or critical issues not listed here, because they are less likely to occur. See the Bugzilla: TM Major and Critical, P1 and P2 query to show those.

We encourage you to enable Wiki Watch for this page: ensure that you are logged on to the Wiki, then click the little 'watch' tab on top of this page. On your personal "preferences" page (accessible from the top right of your screen) you can also enable E-Mail notifications for changes on this page. This will allow you to get notified when other users find important problems that you might be able to work around.

This is a collaborative page: Every user may edit this page and add bugs he or she has filed, that are very obivious or problematic and that he or she'd like other users to be able to work around to avoid. See the TM Bug Process Page for queries to get the full list of known bugs out of bugzilla.

Known Problems in TM 2.0

Bug # Description Workaround
192741 Moving a folder from an archive doesn't work sometimes RSE Local and DStore: when browsing into an archive and using the "Move To" functionality on a folder, it can happen that this folder gets removed from the archive but not extracted properly. This can mean loss of data, and we are working on a fix urgently. Workaround: Copy&Paste the folder out of the archive and delete it in the archive after verifying correct extraction.
194204 RSE FTP: Renaming Files/Folders moves them Renaming an item on an RSE FTP connection can move that item to the place that was expanded before, instead of just renaming it in the same directory. Workaround: before renaming the item, refresh and expand the folder in which the item resides.
181458 Cannot drag&drop / copy&paste from remote to Windows Explorer We had to take out the "Download on Copy" workaround again because of critical bug 189268. A proper fix will need a fix in SWT. Workaround: Copy&Paste to the RSE "Local" file system instead.
153652 Cannot drag&drop from remote into the Project Explorer We had to take out the "Download on Copy" workaround again because of critical bug 189268. A proper fix will need support for the "PluginTransfer" method in the Project Explorer. Workaround: Open the Resource Navigator in a separate view, then drag&drop to the Resource Navigator instead.
190803 Some long-running dstore commands cannot be canceled When a "list directory" query is extremely slow because of e.g. missing mounted file systems, the dstore server gets unresponsive because it is single-threaded for "list" type queries. Other queries are multi-threaded, so fixing this in the future should not be too hard. Unfortunately, when the client cancels the operation further access to the hanging dstore server may block the UI. Workaround: When a dstore connection hangs, cancel the job in the progress view, then disconnect and reconnect the hanging connection. This will restart the dstore server.
179937 (BIDI) File and Path names in files tree do not honor encoding On dstore, launch the server with proper encoding parameter. Multiple servers may be needed for multiple different encodings on the same host. The host-wide encoding control has been added to RSE but it is not yet functional for file and path names. This will be added as a bug fix in RSE 2.0.1.

Issues fixed in recent milestones

Bug # Fixed in Description
187301 2.0 RSE Telnet Integration does not support multiple shells
188939 2.0 RC2 Terminal does not connect unless RXTX serial library is installed
160293 2.0 RC2 RSE perspective doesn't start if only Core is installed: Now it starts but of course it is not very useful without any connection plugins.
179939 2.0 M7 Remote encoding of text files not corrctly considered in BIDI Locale (like Hebrew)
180994 2.0 M7 Expand of filter hangs with dstore
143458 2.0 M7 Right-click > Refresh on a remote folder changes selection to the parent folder
175686 2.0 M6 Cannot install RSE from update site into eclipse-platform. Update Manager claims '...requires feature "org.eclipse.cvs (1.0.0)", or later version'.
153652 2.0 M6 Cannot drag&drop from RSE into C/C++ Projects View
