I handle SBMJOB in these cases by placing quotes around all strings at their
full declared length.
Here is a snipet of my typical SBMJOB command string creation.  I then use
QCMDEXC to execute it.
 ''''' *CAT &UNAME      *CAT ''''' +
 ''''' *CAT &UWSID      *CAT ''''' +
 ''''' *CAT &GROUP      *CAT ''''' +

ie, in my case they're all 9999
However I have debugged the CL and found that's the cause... Although I
always thought if the PARM length = the DCL length then you dont get this
problem. Looking at the archives it seems you definitly dont get it with
SBMJOB, but I'll have to look into this furhter...
