Mark,

When a CLLE program calls an RPG program you can get a machine check 
MCH3601 on the end procedure statement.   This happens most of the time 
when you specify a return variable that is short.  The work around is to 
declare 
the variable with a longer length and substring out the first part.  It is not 
very 
consistent.  Programs may run for months.  One day change the program, 
without touching the parms, next day it starts getting MCH3601.  It happens 
more 
than 50% of the time with 1 byte return variable, say for instance an error 
flag.

We were really surprised when the response from support was that it was 
no longer a bug.  The APAR was closed and they changed the status to a 
"restriction with a work around".  Apparently not enough people use CLLE 
to make it worth while to fix.  They gave us no commitment that it will be 
fixed 
in any future release.  We are currently on V3R7.

 Can you elaborate on the bug?
