Weird. But no big deal. <<SNIP>>

Simply stating that the request "failed" is not very descriptive :-( If there is a reason to expect that the function is supported, e.g. the /failure/ was *not* SQL0084 [although the documentation gives no indication that would be the case], then probably that is an indication that the /strange behavior/ should be reported as a probable defect.? Hopefully whatever the failure was, was not merely due to a missing semicolon, as required by the script processor [at least for lack of an EOF in its place].
