Bug

I'm not sure if this is a bug in WA or in DW but I'll describe it here:
I opened a file in Powerstore which was "read only" and I opened it as "view" because I only wanted to look at the code making sure that it isn't inadvertantly changed while I work on the actual site.

I was trying to see what the validation server behaviors were. The file was checkout.php. When I mouse on the server behaviors panel, the mouse icon sits and spins a while and then the whole panel goes blank. Blank as in there is nothing there, just a bare gray panel. Also the bindings and databases panels are blank. I can mouse to those panels but nothing there. Close the checkout.php and still nothing. Back to the other site, open files, whatever...... nothing restores the server behaviors panel. The only way to recover is to close everything, and exit DW.

This happens every time you open the checkout page?

What operating system and DW version?

Now that's strange. I opened it "writeable" and I still get the same behavior. Now I'm not sure what's going on. This is an unedited file right out of powerstore. This is strange too, if I first open the databases panel and test the connection, then open bindings, then open server behaviors, it all works fine. Somehow the order makes a difference. Seems like maybe this is a DW bug, I'm not sure. It is repeatable though.

Happens everytime and doesn't seem related to "read only" Also when it "wipes out" the panels it wipes out everything going up the column. In my case I'm using the "designer" configuration and it's wiping out the css styles ap elements, tag inspector, weassit site tools and weassist memento. Basically everything going up physically located above it in the column.
