We had the problem from the other end.  We applied the IBM PTFs because of a 
problem we were having and then couldn't get into our release 6 MAPICS 
environments, so we "quickly" removed them.

I think the issue is that QWSACCDS (written by IBM for MAPICS) was changed in 
PTF 617.  And evidently this program and the program changed by IBM PTFs 
SF64181 or 64183 must be in sync.  

We discovered that  we could access MAPICS as long as QWSACCDS was in sync with 
the IBM PTFs.  (If the PTFs weren't installed, we used an old copy of 
QWSACCDS...when they were installed, the new version worked.)

It was a bit of a surprise that an IBM fix would break MAPICS...and a little 
bit of a worry when we apply a new release.

I recently received my PCM package from MAPICS for
SH14105 for R6, I have two R6 environments, one live
and one test.

The PCM had prerequisites for various releases of OS/400.
For V4R4 it was SF64181 & SF64183.

In accordance with the instructions I applied these
PTFs from IBM first and IPL'd and verified my R5
production environment was okay and went home.

The next day earlybird workers couldn't access
the R6 environment!

I quickly applied the MAPICS PCM CD and was back
in business, not sure what the specific problem was.
So my actual point is to be ware of this potential scenario
and plan to perform the IBM PTF & MAPICS PCM updates
back-to-back to avoid a lapse in system availability.

And in the future I'll do a better job of verifying all environments!
