After synchronizing with CVS, the "Model Changed" dialog box appears multiple times

In the CVS & Rational Software Architect v8.0.x integration, after you synchronize and update the projects the following dialog box with a "Reload" button appears:"Model Changed: The model has been changed on the file system. Do you want to load the changes?".If the modifications to a model affect many other models, you will have to click many times on the dialog box's "Reload" button in order to commit the changes to the model.

    We have 53 UML projects depending on each other (without cycling dependencies). In each project, we have sth like eight model files (emx), and among all projects we have 2985 fragment files (efx).

    This morning, I had a change to commit. It took me almost ten minutes to click 177 times on the reload button !

    I insist : I had to click 177 times on the reload button, and most of my team members had to do so too !

    This behavior is unacceptable.
