Pinned topic Does Debug Tool really require CBLQDA(ON)?

http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/ratdevz/v9r0/topic/com.ibm.ent.cbl.zos.doc/migrate/igymdbbt.html

states,

 "COBOL language provides a DECLARATIVES section to handle I/O errors. With Enterprise COBOL V5, the compiler creates a save area for the DECLARATIVES section. This behavior requires the CBLQDA Language Environment® runtime option to be in place. The debug view shows one frame or entry for this scenario for Enterprise COBOL V5.

However, I can't find the same restriction anywhere in the Debug Tool manuals (that were updated in June 2013 - when Enterprise COBOL V5.1 was released).

Does anyone know if this is a real restriction/requirement - or is this an error in the COBOL Migration Guide?

    This is an error in the COBOL V5 Migration Guide, and will be fixed in the next release.  Here is what we will say:

    COBOL language provides a DECLARATIVES section to handle exceptional conditions. With Enterprise COBOL V5, when a DECLARATIVES section gets control in a Debug Tool session, the debug view shows a separate frame for it.
