I tried a few more permutations of the repository setup, all to no

1. Snapshot view on the RB server
Hosting Service : Custom
repository Type : Clear Case
Path : D:\snapshots\RC2009_int_reviewboard_ss <---- This is the path
to the snapshot view

2. Dynamic view mounted at the root of a drive (
Hosting Service : Custom
repository Type : Clear Case
Path : Y:\ <---- The docs seemed to suggest that the path would just
be the drive

One thing to note is that trying to upload a diff doesn't impair the
rest of the application - while the upload spinner is spinning, I can
open up a new tab and interact with the application. The most
difficult part is that there is no output produced anywhere when this
happens (e.g. even if I enable DEBUG=true in conf/settings_local.py).

Can anyone who has used RB w/ ClearCase provide any tips on a working
setup ?
