Dynamic ClearCase Views with TeamCity

I am having issues creating VCS roots that point to dynamic views in BASE ClearCase on a linux server. It seems to be a new issue with TeamCity 4.

On the linux server, the same server that hosts TeamCity, I start the view myview. This creates the view root directory /view/myview/.

On the New VCS Root screen, I enter /view/myview/vobs/dir1 as my view path and choose BASE as the ClearCase type. I then test the connection.

In TeamCity 3.1.2, the connection is successful with the following message: Connection Successful! directory version "/view/myview/vobs/dir1@@/main/12" and the message continues to list some details about the directory.

In TeamCity 4.02, I get the following error message directly below the view path text box: Invalid path: '/view/myview/vobs/dir1'; cannot find view root, directory containing 'view.dat' file

This view root does not contain a view.dat file. It appears from the following article that view.dat files are only associated with Snapshot views (http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21204161). This is a dynamic view. In addition, it appears that a snapshot view on linux, the file be named ".view.dat".

Has TeamCity 4 dropped support for dynamic views? If not, any ideas on how I can get my view root to be accepted?
