Intermittant exception generated using clearcase plugin & dynamic view when running mkview immediately after the rmview

      Description

      Our jobs are setup to use dynamic views and the settings are to remove view and re-create a clean view every time the job runs.

      I am also using a static view tag name. So we use the view name over and over.

      So when the job runs, the clearcase plugin will remove the dynamic view using rmview followed immediately with a mkview. We intermittently see an exception on the mkview.

      This article seems to indicate that when removing a view an immediately re-creating it causes the error when using NFS shares. The article seems to indicate that a brief delay between the rmview/mkview will resolve the issue:

          I see there was a configurable delay added after the "endview" command to resolve some issues. Can we also do the same right after the "rmview" command?
          Seems like it would be a simple one line change to add the same delay after "rmview". If someone could get me a version of the plugin with the change I can test it for them.

The existing delay should now apply to rmview commands.
