The security package we had problems with is named "StandGuard". It's a very good security program, I'm sure, but its default settings get in the way of normal activity at times.

Look at the registered exit points on the machine (WRKREGINF). I'm not overly familiar with these, but a number of them were put in place especially for the security guys like Townsend or Powerlock to add security features to the machine. One or more provide a way to do extra checking when a user validation is attempted. The program called may behave differently from a Telnet(5250) login than from a database connection.

Is there a security exit in place at this customer? We had a similar
problem with a customer who was using a security product to filter all
logins. The login attempt shows in QHST, but nothing else shows up,
success or failure. The login is basically held like there was a
QSYSOPR inquiry message waiting for a reply.

What I know about the operating system's exit hooks, and a buck, might still get you a cup of coffee.

I looked up exit programs, in connection with database host servers, and the first thing I found was in connection with the PCSACC network attribute. On the box in question, it's set to *OBJAUT.

Is there someplace else I should be looking for security exit programs clamping down on JDBC? Or something I can do to test your hypothesis empirically?

Oh, and I just ran another BIRT test; there are no QSYSOPR messages in connection with it. And nothing in the joblog for the QZDASOINIT job that QHIST says I connected to, that could have been me, other than a "ACGDTA for 543510/QUSER/QZDASOINIT not journaled; reason 1."; all other joblog messages are either hours before, or minutes after, my BIRT report attempt.
