APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
A query such as:

SELECT RECID
,STATUS
,VMNBR
, TIMESTAMP(UPDYR || '-' ||
UPDMM || '-' ||
UPDDD || '-' ||
UPDHH || '.' ||
UPDMI || '.' ||
UPDSS || '.' || '0')
AS UPDTS
FROM VDRMST

fails if the value of UPDMI is less than 10. The value of the
TIMESTAMP will be reported as '++++++++++++++++++++++++++'. If
run through a program, this query may produce MSGSQL0180.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA41593 :
-----------------------------
IBM Systemz allows timestamp character string to have single
digit for minute and second parts of the string when separators
are included in the string.  System i fails if a single digit is
used for minute or second parts of timestamp character string.

A fix was made to allow single digit for minute and second parts
of timestamp character string when separators are included.  It
now matches function in Systemz.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA41593 :

None.
