Indeed, my program was in QUSRWRK, hung on msgw. Turned out to be a library list problem, so I changed the jobd and the program ran fine.

Thanks for the help.

It's late, so I don't have tons of information at my fingertips, but let
me try to explain as best as I can recall. When you create a connection
using the toolbox, the toolbox launches a job named QZRCSRVS (by default
these jobs run in QUSRWRK). Typically in a situation like this when a
ProgramCall hangs, it's because the program called halted with a
message. If that's the case here, you'll see the message in the QSYSOPR
message queue as well as in the job's joblog.

Still can't find the right job? You can also programmatically determine
which QZRCSRVS job is the one you want. If you take a look at the AS400
class, there is a method called getJobs which returns an array of jobs.
Now, different jobs are started for different services, such as signon
and database. If you pass it the right parameter (I believe it's
COMMANDCALL), you'll get an array of jobs used for program and command
calls. Now, I can't think of a situation where there is more than one
job, so my guess is that if you dump the attribute of the first entry in
the returned array (I think the methods getName, getUser and getNumber
will work) and dump that with your "Program about to be called" message.
Then look at the resulting job to see what the hangup is.
