Presumably then, that could be how the "special handling PTFs" are
"used", to effect the apply irrespective of the INSTYP setting?
According to the INSPTF doc:
_i Install Program Temporary Fix (INSPTF) i_
"Where allowed to run: All environments (*ALL)
The Install Program Temporary Fix (INSPTF) command allows the user to
load and apply PTFs for multiple products with a single command. PTF
groups will be copied to the system when they do not already exist on
the system or when the level of the PTF group on the media is higher
than the level of the PTF group that exists on the system. If
LICPGM(*ALL) is specified, any _special handling PTFs_ listed in PTF
groups will be _used_ during the install.
Because Rob experienced ill-effects, it would seem problematic that
there is no warning in the documentation that the effect of those
"special handling PTFs" might defeat the *DLYALL specification for the
Install Type (INSTYP). Yet arguably, that condition was warned of in
the Cover Letter. Hmmm, I suppose someone who was impacted would best
decide if the INSPTF should have a "Note:" added, warning that what was
seen in the described scenario might be cause for concern; perhaps
directing the reader to review the cover letter to see what might be
applied *IMMMED irrespective of the request to *DLYALL.?.?

The PTF install processing will automatically pre-apply the following
