CPYNV is not necessary to handle decimal data types.  The following works at 

#include <decimal.h>       
int main ( void )          
   _Decimal(5,0) dec = 0;  

Since you say it works on 450 also (and when TGTRLS is 450) then it sounds 
like a defect and should be reported to IBM as an APAR -- unless it is a 
limitation of the wonderful new PASE compilers. What happens with
