APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
Internal serviceability improvements are needed for Telnet
Server.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE41588' :
-------------------------------
Internal serviceability improvements were added for Telnet
Server and TRCTCPAPP *TELNET.
Other possible symptoms corrected by this fix include:
MSGCPF3C1D F/QSYDIGERR/sendError T/QTVTNCSH/initDev
MSGCPF242D T/UserExitHandler
MSGTCP2544 incorrectly specified QIBM_QTG_DEVINIT and INIT0100
for QIBM_QTG_DEVTERM TERM0100 user exit exception

Other changes made by this fix include:
ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*TELNET) has changed and will now end any
active QTVDEVICE jobs that are running when the command is
issued or when the QTVTELNET job is ended.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE41588' :
----------------------------------
None.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR 'SE41592' :
-------------------------------------------------
Telnet code is inconsistently removing devices from the LUDLIST.
This can lead to unpredictable results with the device.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE41592' :
-------------------------------
The device was incorrectly being removed from the virtual device
LUDLIST when *TELNET was ended.
In other cases, errors encountered during an attempt to start a
session on a device were not cleaning up properly.
These have been fixed.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE41592' :
----------------------------------
None.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR 'SE41593' :
-------------------------------------------------
i5/OS V6R1 Telnet Server will display the incorrect sysreq menu
when the Bypass signon option is requested. The sysreq menu with
option 80. Disconnect Job should be displayed. But instead we
are given a different menu.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE41593' :
-------------------------------
SysReq menu will be properly displayed for telnet sessions.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE41593' :
----------------------------------
None.
