ClearCase: Selena does not pick up changes from dynamic views

After I've switched to Selena, I noticed that external changes in the dynamic views are never picked up and there is no way to force IDEA to do it. "Synchronise" button does seemingly nothing. The only way to pick up the changes is to restart IDEA and reload the project (which is horrendously slow!).

Has anyone experienced similar problems?

Another weird artifact is that when I invoke a version tree from within IDEA, CC comparison tool does not work in there. It works fine when I open the version tree for the same element from within Clearcase Explorer.

ClearCase version 2003.06.10+ (as reported by CC explorer).

It is a general problem of IDEA, not the CC plugin in particular. Working
with Rational's MVFS is not implemented, something may change in future,
when our own Virtual File System will be reimplemented.

I resorted to pulling an old trick: I renamed FileWatcher.dll, so that it is not loaded anymore. This made things slighly better.
Have you got a JIRA issue, related to MVFS problems, which I could watch for further updates?
