    with sequential file as target fails at first

Problem conclusion

  • The problem is caused by the behavior of chown() on HPUX where
    auser can change the owner of a file to any other user
    (includingroot) but then can't remove the file.  Processing for
    the   environment variable DS_SEQ_BYPASS_CHOWN has been
    added to the  DSD_SEQOpen.B module.  When set to 1, a different
    method of     temporarily creating the file for validation is
    used to bypass the chown call.
