Unable to Add Repository Error

I am at a customer site today installing TIC and Studio for TIC.  When the customer publishes a job (not an action) to TIC, and creates a flow, they get an 'unable to add flow repository' error when they try to test or run the job.  The first job we published and created s flow for worked, but none after.  Since then we've tried several jobs, and none work.  Anyone have any ideas as to what might be the problem?  Thanks!

Re: Unable to Add Repository Error

the 'unable to add flow repository' error comes as a notification on the top of the screen when you press test or go live?

Yes.  The error seems to be transient, and disappears too fast to get a screen shot.  The error occurs with the client's account.  I run a nearly identical job and don't see this error.

Re: Unable to Add Repository Error

in general, in the logs we see:
Caused by: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The string "--" is not permitted within comments.
and reason is: in flow feature comments we use id of the job. and somehow Studio generates id as '_kbRN4DI_EeaE6--i6R0Twg'.
Issue already fixed in 1.6 TIC. And as workaround in 1.5.1:

create copy of the job in Studio and make sure in .properties file of the job id has no '--'
republish job to TIC
