It's really frustrating when you can't change bug status or do some other tasks. 
That's what I meant; I presume that's part of 'customized workflows' feature. 
Yep, I had bunch of experience with ClearQuest, did not liked it either.

   * What it does better?
   * Is it faster?
   * Is it more stable?

Sorry if humor of the situation has not reached you; even with smiles present. I 
had not had personal issues with you - so far, and IMHO - and I don't know if
