Refactoring History is missing on consecutive opening of the existing i Project properties view

In RDPi under i Project perspective the Refactoring History displaying when first time opened but missing from consecutive display of properties.

When first time start the RDPi (RBD & RDPi Version 8.x) is first time launched (started) then selecting an IBM i Project from i Project perspective on right click of the mouse and then selecting Properties displayed the Refactoring History, but once it selected then on consecutive display of i Project Properties does not display the Refactoring History. If I close the RDPi application and then restart it will display again.

For your information RTC client (Ver 3.x) eclipse is also installed.

Please refer to the attached screen shots document for further details.

Thanks & Regards

Use Case:

Start RDPi application
Go to i Project Perspective
Select an existing i Project
Right click of the mouse and select Properties option, which will open the Properties View in a new window
Select (click mouse) Refactoring History, which will display the Refactoring History Details
