Error description

  • The dmpmqmsg utility crashes when loading messages with special
    characters or
    double quotes.
    
    A core on UNIX or a dump file on Windows will be generated.
    
    This problem occurs only when loading the message file created
    using -dA option and the message contains special characters or
    double quotes.
    
    This problem likely to occur when the first character of the
    message
    is a special character or double quote but might also occur on
    other
    conditions when the message contains specific character or
    double quotes.
    
    
    Example:
    
    Message(including double quotes) : "TESTMSG"
    
    dmpmqmsg -i TEST.QL -dA -m QM1 -f testmsg1
