Even then it shouldn't be "carried over". Setting PRDLIB on the SBMJOB command should only affect the job in which SBMJOB itself is running--not the job resulting from the SBMJOB command.

This is, of course, a bit at odds with other entries in the library list

carried over.

PRDLIB is different from the other library lists. It is meant to be used ONLY while a particular command or menu is active. Once you start another job that command or menu is no longer active.
