    -DBGMGR started task ABENDS422 Reason Code 01A0 when STOP
     issued to terminate it.
     (PH25280 at 14.1)
    
    -Code Coverage: PROCEDURE statement has wrong coloring when
     running PL/I program with TEST(HOOK) and DYNDEBUG ON.
     (PH25899 at 14.1)
    
    -Remote debug of COBOL V4 with SET SUBSCRIPT ON - loop on array
     with no basing.  Automonitor was on, step was being used by
     the client and they stepped to line that had a variable that
     was a linkage section item with occurs that had no basing.
     The debugger then looped.
     (PH21650 at 14.1)
    
    -z/OS Debugger gets an user abend 4036 reason code X'2'
     occurred in module CEEPLPKA at offset X'ED8EC'.
    
     Debugger may call AIBTDLI before the interface is initialized,
     causing a program check and abend U4036-2.  When an IMS
     dependent region starts with Java parameters (ENVIRON and
     JVMOPMAS), Debugger is invoked for region's initialization
     before the environment is set up for AIBTDLI. Debugger's
     attempt to check for IMS isolation abends.
    
     (PH22325 at 14.1)
    
    -Running Code Coverage for a z/OS Automated Unit Testing
     Framework (zUnit) of a COBOL program (z/OS Automated Unit
     Testing Framework (zUnit) > Code Coverage...), the report
     displays zero percent coverage for all files.
     (PH26367 at 14.2)
    
    -Remote debug ASSEMBLER - jumpto in breakpoint action is not
     stopping at the right statement.
     (PH23098 at 14.1)
    
    -Performance slow at step between breakpoints in remote
     debugger due to binder calls for MQ modules.
    
     Also, uring the debug session the following is displayed:
     EQA4015E Load module information could not be retrieved for
     module CSQ.....
     This message should not be displayed.
     (PH23617 at 14.1)
    
    -If a CADP profile is active for a user program, the debugger
     will run every time the user program is run, even when there
     is no terminal available.  If a terminal is not available, the
     debugger still executes any commands it can find (eg, the
     global preferences), and then it runs the user program.  When
     it terminates, the debugger wants to save the breakpoints and
     other settings, but it tries to use ddnames INSPBPM and
     INSPSAFE instead of building the dsnames from EQAOPTS.  Note
     that the CICS region JCL does not (and should not) have
     ddnames INSPBPM and INSPSAFE.  INSPBPM and INSPSAFE are just
     for batch debugging.
    
     This causes messages EQA1748E and EQA1765E.
    
     (PH23944 at 14.1)
    
    -The user starts a remote debug session on IDz in order to
     debug a COBOL program on CICS. While moving through the source
     the user gets an ASRA or AZI6 abend. Navigating the same
     transaction out of a debug session works normally.  The CIBH
     LE control block shows the error message CEE0199W:  The
     termination of a thread was signaled due to a STOP statement.
     The DSA address passed to the CEETBCK routine was not set
     specifically for that call and is invalid, causing the issue.
     (PH24212 at 14.1)
    
    -In z/OS Debugger an ABENDS0C4 occurs in EQA0SUTI when stepping
     into a COBOL V4 program compiled OPT with perform inlining.
     (PH24221 at 14.1)
    
    -CICS DTCN: The debugger is not stopping for an IP address
     match because it only matches on transactions which come from
     web servers or MQ, but not which come from a Windows
     workstation through CICS Transaction Gateway.
     (PH24411 at 14.1)
    
    -Assembler debug displays wrong variables' values with multiple
     USINGs and a DROP statement.
     (PH25188 at 14.2)
    
    -Debug session is abending in the following situation:  After a
     successful debug session in CICS, the COBOL program is being
     altered and recompiled, no CEMT NEWCOPY transaction is issued
     in CICS, restart the debugger for the now changed COBOL
     program, an abend can occur.  The debugger will now issue a
     message and the program source is not displayed.
     (PH25381 at 14.1)
    
    -Program Check at EQA30PT+000024FA in CICS debug session after
     abend AKEH was observed in the log, but possible other
     locations could be observed.  Debugger should just percolate
     the error, like it does for other 'purge' abends.
     (PH25337 at 14.1)
    
    -Bad performance in Code Coverage mode if PL/I SYSDEBUG file
     does not match creation date with DYNDEBUG OFF.
     (PH26160 at 14.1)
    
    -Debugger Abend on an AIBTDLI INQY FIND IOPCB call in
     IsThisIMSIso running in a batch job under DL/2 (Syncsort's
     emulation of IMS). The program did not have an IOPCB, which
     was the reason for the abend.
     (PH25893 at 14.1)
    
    -Using IBM z/OS Debugger, monitoring a COBOL v5+ condition name
     as a whole array in the Monitors view may cause an abend
     0C4/AKEA during the debug session. The SVC dump will display
     the program check error in module EQARCEXP CSECT
     DbgEvaluateExpr.
     (PH25829 at 14.1)
    
    -High CPU usage in Code Coverage for a large program.
     (PH25849 at 14.1)
    
    -z/OS Debugger needs to add support for a group of relative
     instructions with OPCODE C6 like CLGRL and others.
     (PH25915 at 14.1)
    
    -z/OS Debugger does not provide correct info if EQAUEDAT is
     used for COBOL V6.2 sidefile location.
     (PH26658 at 14.1)
    
    -CICS debug: COBOL V6 TEST(SEPARATE).  If there is a problem
     with a sidefile, TDQ CINL (DD CINSPLS) stays allocated and
     open after debug session. This causes problems with compiling
     the program because the sidefile is still locked.
     (PH26740 at 14.1)
    
    For COBOL V5 and V6 usages above:
