In *some* case change set go into bad state; in the first place it should not have been possible. The changesets in questions is sort of moved from one component to another, which is causing the conflict.

If you're running into this sort of issue, its often not possible to remove those changeset using out of the box tools, you need to contact IBM Support to clean up the problematic changesets.

Could you provide the defect for this issue?   (I assume a defect for this was filed).   I'd be interested in finding out what were the underlying reasons for the problem (I have never seen this problem myself).

This isn't an defect and we've created an tool to remove the faulty changesets. I can email to the respective "internal ER" where we've discussed the changes made to address this issue.

Yes, please mail me the internal ER (or a link to it).   TeamRepositoryException is thrown for lots of different reasons, but if that is all the feedback a user is given, I would consider that a defect ... the user needs to be given a meaningful error message that they can act on.
