    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 .

    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.
