Thus there would appear to be a defect [at least at that release & unknown PTF level];

This problem is apparent (for RENAME and ALIAS) on VRM510 too therefore it's probably been broken for a very long time. Just because no customer has reported it doesn't mean it shouldn't be fixed once it is known (i.e., reported in the Lab). Leaving known defects in code is simply sloppy.

Does seem odd though. There is nothing particularly different about a RENAME or CREATE ALIAS versus any other SQL DDL statement so why should these fail when others, such as CREATE TABLE, CREATE INDEX, etc. work OK?

Interestingly these statements run successfully via a QM Query object-- even a dynamic one.
