In RDPi from RSE using Go Into in Objects then creating filter coming up with Run Time Errors

From RDPi (V8.0.3) in RSE connected to iOS connection then selecting the Objects and on right click of mouse choose Go Into option brings the RSE Objects view. From this view when creating a user filter from Work with libraries/objects/members an error message comes up with ?An unexpected exception occurred?.

Details of the error and screen shots attached.

Thanks & Regards

Use Case:

1. Connect to a iOS and login and expand the connection profile.

2. Right Click mouse after selecting Objects and select Go Into option

3. This will bring list of objects from there expand the Work with libraries (or any other work with objects/members) will bring the wizard.

4. Type a valid existing library name and then click Next button

5. Give a valid Filter name or leave same as the library name

6. Then Click Next and then the Finish button
Error message comes up and doesn't allow to creates the filter
