Problem Conclusion

There is a change to the LIC linkloader to change the way that  
it performs its post PTF processing cleanup and prevent the    
error. Post PTF processing cleanup occurs if there are stale    
PTFs remaining in storage that need to be cleared. Stale PTFs  
can result because of errors trying to apply PTFs and/or users  
not fully setting their PTFs for apply on the next IPL. The    
user can reduce the chances of post processing cleanup by      
verifying that they did not have any errors when staging their  
MF PTFs for apply (DELAYED) on the next IPL.
