Steve and others,



Here is the info from IBM: -



Error description

Since upgrade from z/OS 1.4 to z/OS 1.6, abend0C4 occurs in IGZCPAC,
IGZCPRC + x'1E8' reg9 is bad.
.
COBOL for OS/390 2.2 program using DFSORT E15 EXIT.
DFSORT 1.5 failing on LE z/OS 1.6 or 1.7, works ok on LE z/OS 1.4 .

Local fix

usermods provided by LE c/t

Problem summary

****************************************************************
* USERS AFFECTED: Language Environment COBOL applications that *
* execute on z/OS 1.6 or later, that call *
* applications that register their own ESTAE *
* routines. *
* *
* Examples of these applications are DFSORT *
* SYNCSORT. *
****************************************************************
* PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Starting with z/OS 1.6, the COBOL run- *
* time utilizes an internal Language *
* Environment procedure for masking *
* conditions that may occur during its *
* execution. If a COBOL application *
* calls another routine that registers *
* its own ESTAE routine, this procedure *
* gets improperly disabled and causes *
* subsequent abends to get improperly *
* externalized. *
* *
* The abend that occurs is an ABEND0C4 *
* in IGZCPRC on or about offset x'1E8'. *
****************************************************************
* RECOMMENDATION: *
****************************************************************
See Problem Description.

Problem conclusion

Code is changed so the ABEND0C4 the COBOL run-time expects to be masked
will not be externalized.

Temporary fix

We are already on z/OS 1.6 but use Enterprise COBOL for z/OS 3.4.
Looking at this you seem to need to use COBOL for OS/390 and VM 2.2 and
use DFSORT exit 15 processing. That certainly limits the problem.
