APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
To match AIX, PASE getargs() and getevars() should truncate
results in the string buffer instead of returning an error if a
pointer in the argv or environment array is set to zero.  Those
functions should also return a null string in the result buffer
and use errno EFAULT for an error copying strings from the
target process.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA43687 :
-----------------------------
The system is changed.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA43687 :
--------------------------------
None.
