New issue 2930 by Post review gives incorrect base path on Windows with ClearCase

*** For customer support, please post to
*** If you have a patch, please submit it to
*** Do not post confidential information in this bug report!

What version are you running?
RBTools 0.4.3

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Use post-review on Windows with ClearCase dynamic view
2. Run post-review in dynamic view catalog U:\some_vob\ with following line:
post-review -d --tracking some_branch

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

The actual output is for instance:
RBTools 0.4.3
Python 2.7.2 (default, Jun 24 2011, 12:21:10) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)]
Running on Windows-7-6.1.7601-SP1
Home = C:\Users\some_user\AppData\Roaming
Current Directory = U:\some_view

There don't seem to be any diffs!

The view base path is truncated: U:\some_vi - this is because cleartool pwv -root returns always empty result on dynamic view on Windows.

This path is being sent to the server on calling the RB API, but I do not know whether incorrect base path breaks the review or not. Didn't get that far yet.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Windows 7 64-bit
Chrome(but this doesn't matter)
