[protege-owl] bug in the processing of import statements in protege?

Hi all,

The developers of OBI ( think we may have found a bug in
the way protege 3.3.* handles imports.

The syntax

works fine, the syntax

     <owl:Ontology rdf:about=""/>

doesn't :-)

What happens is that, irrespective of how you set the rdfs:label to be the
default view for the classes, not all of the class names are displayed
properly. The version that doesn't work in 3.3 and 3.3.1 *does* work in
Protege 4 Alpha. Weird... Does anyone know what's happening?

The attached file is one that loads, with the "working" import statement:
see how the annotations of the ontology are now displayed beautifully :-)
(creators etc). With this version it should also retrieve the
defaultLanguage value, and thus display the labels properly. The
defaultLanguage is set, but doesn't seem to be being picked up.

The file seems to be syntactically correct, but it would just be nice to
have protege displaying it correctly.

Allyson :)
