APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
a job performing database row operations on a file which has
referential integrity cascade (like delete) operations is not
finishing, it appears to stay in #dbenfcn.   The constraint
enforcement is happening during a commit of the transaction.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA49087 :
-----------------------------
a condition exists in which a dependent index and its member has
a problem.  while performing key look ups for each dependent row
to cascade to, we end up looping on one key with a DSE in an
unexpected state.  the processing has been updated to detect
this unusual and unexpected condition and will react by logging
(VLOG) and invalidating the suspect index.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA49087 :
--------------------------------
None.
