Show all in tree editor not revealing sub-elements in Linux or OSX
To recreate this bug:
-Open a dp
-Open the tree editor for the dp
-Click "Show all"
-Click on an element that wasn't in the dp (publisher is usually a safe choice
None of the sub-elements of that element will be displayed, making the element
appear to be a leaf node. This effectively prevents user's from adding new
elements to the dp using the tree wizard, as they can't fill in values for
Note that this is only occurring on Mac OSX and Linux. The Windows version
seems to be working properly.

I'm getting the same thing on Windows. Also, the elements of the "project"
module don't show up when you click on "show all". In theory, a CHOICE node
should appear under which the following elements would be found (under
SEQUENCE): title, personnel, abstract, funding, studyAreaDescription,

The problem was caused by inserting a clone a new tree node and cloned node doesn't have information about children. If we changed back to use node itself rather than cloned node, it will cause another problem - if eml document has two duplicate node, the second couldn't show subtree.
I tried to deep copy a node rather than clone a node in new approach. It can resolve the problem, but performance is very poor. So I add condition that only deep copy duplicate node, now it get better performance.
