    -ABENDS0C4 Reason Code X'4' occurred in module EQA00OHH.
    
     A program under debug can create multiple language
     environments using CEEPIPI. When one of these environments is
     suspended or terminates, the debugger may run its termination
     sequence prematurely. This causes an abend when the program
     continues in a remaining environment.
    
     (PH22384 at 14.1)
    
    -ABEND in EQA00DMM+DC470CF8 when load module is loaded from LLA
     and no EQALOAD DD card exists.
     (PH05892 at 14.1)
    
    -ABENDS12E in the debugger. This  problem occurs if the SVC
     screening is on and save area chaining is not done in the
     standard way
     (PH10927 at 14.1)
    
    -MFI debug session hangs and displays garbage when debugger
     stops at ESTAE exit in application program.
     (PH20971 at 14.1)
    
    -Bad performance in Enterprise PL/I Code Coverage when SYSDEBUG
     file does not match object creation date (same source, but
     different compile dates)
     (PH21796 at 14.1)
    
    -CICS COBOL Debug: GO will stop at PROGRAM-ID.  This occurs if
     there is a paragraph at the very beginning of the PROCEDURE
     DIVISION.
     (PH18538 at 14.1)
    
    -IMS Transaction Isolation: Technical User ID is used for
     accessing SAVESETS and SAVEBPS data sets instead of developers
     User ID.
     (PH19027 at 14.1)
    
    -Remote debug: COBOL V5 breakpoint with compound expression not
     working.  Example:  VAR1='4' AND VAR2='2'
     (PH18622 at 14.1)
    
    -Code Coverage issues when COBOL V5 OPT(2).  Compiler issues
     IGYCB7300-W   The code from lines xxx - yyy in program
     'xxxxxxxx' was safely removed by the optimizer.
     (PH19998 at 14.1)

     test data for zUnit if the test data has leading zeros.

     with FD.
     (PH20215 at 14.1)
    
    -Code Coverage stops working half way into the COBOL OPT(2)
     program.  For program A calling program B, Code Coverage
     results were only for program A.

    -z/OS Debugger abend (code ---/ATCV) has occurred in exit
     program EQAXEIOU at exit point XEIOUT

    -The "DpiICU Failed to load DLL" WTO should be removed except
     for when there really is a problem loading a DLL.  Right now
     there are other scenarios that cause that WTO to be emitted,
     even though that WTO is not applicable in those cases.  An
     example is when a module is in LLA.

    -The Load Module Analyzer is updated to support these
     Enterprise COBOL compiler options:
    
     COBOL 6.1 added   a suboption to NUMCHECK(ZON)
    
       NUMCHECK(ZON(ALPHNUM | NOALPHNUM), ...)
    
     COBOL 6.2 added a suboption to TEST(SEPARATE)
