I currently have two systems that show up under "Pending Host Changes", but with no changes listed. Selecting all items in the list and clicking "Yes" to accept the changes doesn't remove them from the list, nor does accepting the changes individually for the systems. This isn't a big deal (can't see opening a ticket for it) but I am curious why this happens and how to fix it. This is Tectia Manager running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 5.7. The two systems that have this issue are both laptops, if that makes a difference.

OK, I think I know what's going on here. One of the two "stuck" hosts showed up with a real change this morning...I accepted it, and now it's not showing up changed anymore. The other one still is. My hypothesis is that these hosts, which are laptops, changed IP address due to being used from another location, and then changed back before I checked for host changes. Tectia flagged them as changed initially, but doesn't check when another change comes in to see if it just reverses the prior change (I'm not even sure how you'd do that), so they remain flagged as changed...but when displaying them to accept changes, no changes are found, so no changes show up. If there is a bug here, it's that the changed flag isn't being cleared in the database when accepting host changes.
