Issue with Add Component (It's not showing a stream I opened in a previous session)

I believe I have found an issue with the Add Component dialog, whereby it only displays streams with components that you have seen in your session.

1) Create StreamA and StreamB
2) Create a new component in StreamA, ComponentA
3) Close client (I'm using the fat client here)
4) Re-open client and Open StreamB and select "Add...", then "Component in another repository workspace or stream". The list does not include StreamA, nor any stream with components that you haven't yet expanded in the tree view.

This seems like a defect - yes/no?

Hmm. Now wondering if this might be intentional, due to the volume of streams you may have, in order to make it easier to find what you want by only showing you streams you have interacted with in your session.

If you type in the first character of the stream, does it appear? As you suspected, an exhaustive search for all streams is not performed when the dialog is opened. A search is only performed when the user types something.

I see now - that was not apparent to me in the dialog. Thanks!
