I am (of course) not losing the hope to find the original
bug, but have no idea how to proceed.

Debugging a service job can be a challenge. However, if you
can make the problem happen at will, there is still hope.

"Integrated i5/OS Debugger" can set a breakpoint on a
"Service Entry Point" such as the entry point to your
program. Your debug session gets control when the PC
program invokes the i5 program. You can then do all the
things that you expect to do in an interactive debugger.

I have just met the Integrated i5/OS Debugger as part of
Rational Developer for System i (RDI), but I have a notion
that it was also part of the earlier WDSC product.

Advise will be highly appreciated :-)

Hope this helps.
