APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
When the API getgroupattr() is used to scan the system for Group
Profile users, under some circumstances the final null byte in
string is not set, leading the application to read garbage data.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE66193 :
-----------------------------
The code that filled the buffer had a bug that set the pointer
to the final byte in the buffer to NULL, instead of setting the
contents at the address in the pointer to a NULL byte. This has
been fixed.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE66193 :
--------------------------------
None.
