CEETREC sounds good, but how can I issue it if the job is waiting for the
screen input? The only technique I know would be to use a break message
handling program, but since system screen input is *DFTACTGRP not *CALLER,
even if I create the break message handler as part of the activation group
I'm trying to end, the nearest control boundary algorithm would be not let
me do it: the handler would start below *DFTACTGRP programs in the stack.

Sending an escape mesage is a nice idea too, but is it going to percolate al
the way up through the *DEFTACTGRP screen input layer? I'll give it a try.

Check the CEETREC API. It should do the trick.

"The Normal End (CEETREC) API is used to do a normal ending of the
activation group containing the nearest control boundary.  First, the
terminate-imminent condition is sent to give all intervening call stack
entries a chance to clean up, or stop the end operation.  All call stack
entries to the nearest control boundary end unless the resume cursor is
moved while handling the terminate-imminent condition.  If the call
stack
entry for the control boundary is also the oldest call stack entry in
the
activation group, the activation group ends, provided that call stack
entries were ended."
