    01. The Precompiler Statement No is received as a full integer
        field but stored and processed as a short integer.
    02. The FA GUI uses java URI class when handling history file
        names, in which # has special meaning. The hash character
        caused history file names to be incorrectly handled.
    03. An ISPF service is called when gathering some of the
        information for the display which performs an OPEN of the
        history file data set.  When the user does not have READ
        data set access, but is accessing the history file via
        XFACILIT authorization, an abend S913 occurs.
    04. FA is touching the start and end of each CICS transaction
        storage range.  With a high number of storage ranges, the
        total page count becomes significant and might exceed the
        MaxMinidumpPages value in effect.
    05. The newly created fault entry was deleted during automatic
        space management because the history file size exceeded
        the logical history file size, and there were not enough
        other unlocked fault entries to bring the size down to the
        logical history file size.
    06. A recent enhancement to report 'Default History File'
        incorrectly performed options processing resulting in an
        uninitialzed field access. resulting in an abend.
    07. CONTROLLED storage has a bad descriptor address causing an
        invalid array definition.
    08. Migrated dump data sets are cleaned up by an OMVS task.
        The parent task should ignore the child process state.
    09. Open files returned by IGZXAPI become arbitrarily sequenced
        when stored in persistent keydata.
    10. The new column names were appended to the list of current
        column names instaed of replacing it.
    11. Module IDIADOP is linked AMODE(24).
    12. EXEC IDIPEM01 contains a lower case LREC parameter.
    13. LE heap storage overlay during DB2 DBRM processing.
    14. ISPF panel width variable not always properly initialized.
    15. Fault Analyzer is processing a JVM abend and a long module
        name is causing a storage overlay.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01. The statement number field is correctly stored and processed
        for new faults. Historical fault entries will still display
        the truncated value.
    02. Special characters are now 'escaped' in history file data
        set names. This allows the use of # anywhere in history file
        names.
    03. If the user does not have READ data set access, some of the
        information will no longer be attempted to be displayed.
    04. The storage has been added to the XDUMP instead of the
        minidump.
    05. A check has been added to never delete the fault entry
        currently being created.
    06. In IDICHKI the options processing has been corrected and
        additional checks have been added to ensure incomplete
        options processing in future does not result in similar
        abends.
    07. Bad descriptor message now issued for this situation.
    08. IDISMIGD is changed to issue "sigignore" for SIGCHLD.
    09. Persistent keydata now sorted before use to ensure each
        file is associated with the correct BLF.
    10. The list of column names is now being replaced correctly.
    11. Module IDIADOP is no longer shipped and this module was
        still available at the reported site. The call to this
        module is removed.
    12. LREC parameter is converted to upper case.
    13. The LE heap storage overlay has been eliminated.
    14. ISPF panel width variable is now being correctly
        initialized.
    15. Module name copy operation is corrected.
