In Siebel version 8.1.1.14.8 [IP2014] and 15.2 [IP2015]

Patch Set 14.8 and 15.2 introduces new bug in SmartScripts: not able to use Pick or MVG or Shuttle applets properly 

After making a selection in a question rendered with a Pick Applet, the selected answer will not be visible.

The agent therefore has no lasting verification of what was chosen.

Because the answer is invisible, if the question is marked as 'Must Answer' or 'Answer If Reached', this validation wil fail, and progress will be blocked.

However, it should be noted that the actual answer is retained by the SmartScript on the server, and the correct values will be saved in Save Answer Table, or related business components, if the SmartScript is Finished.
