APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
System i Navigator and the AFP Workbench Viewer are used to
display *AFPDS spooled files on an IBM i system that reference
AFP resources (such as overlays and page segments) so the end
users can reprint a few pages of their reports remotely. This
works okay for smaller spooled files, but users are finding that
larger spooled files will result in the Network Print host
server job (QNPSERVS) failing with MSGMCH0601 and the AFP
Workbench Viewer failing with a CWBPRT32 error that states:

CWBNP1012 - The following error occurred while communicating
with job xxxxxx/QUSER/QNPSERVS on system XXXXXXXX... MCH3601 -
Pointer not set for location referenced.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE60181 :
-----------------------------
This PTF fixes the reported problem.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE60181 :
--------------------------------
None.
