you have to recomputed the checksum, but that is all.
the program does not alter itself, only the current state
in which it running. This is a security hole in the sense
that the program looks completely normal and will
pass check-object-integrity. The program will have to
be created on releases before V5R1 or at least saved
to such releases.
