Snapshot of the endless loop of opening nonexistent files
Description of problem:
An attempt to open a rule with spaces in name will result in an endless loop of opening new editor windows. User has to close browser window.
This behavior can be avoided by setting "dom.url.getters_decode_hash" preference to "true" on Firefox's "about:config" page.
There is a change in GWT 2.7.0 that mitigates this issue so the next product version (6.2.0), that has upgraded GWT dependency is not affected.
Please also notice that this issue is only reproducible with the latest Firefox version (41.0), which is not certified with BRMS and BPM Suite 6.1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any rule with spaces in name in Authoring perspective.

I created the KCS below:
It should be enough until 6.2 release.
Given that I will remove it from patch update list.
Let's keep this BZ opened for future verification over 6.2.0.
I am setting it as MODIFIED.
