I dumped both the tables (as well as #3 and #17) and they showed the
size value at the "new" location (offset x'1014').

If this system has these values at a different location from another supposedly the same (at least as far as LIC, OS and PTF level) then there must be another field value that is the trigger for this change. I wish I had access to a system exhibiting this behaviour.

I haven't checked the other header fields as they are not referenced
in my program plus I do not know the correct offsets.

What you see here is likely:
00008000 00000000 2837CDE8 7D00193F Pointer to QWCBT00
00FF8F00 Last available entry in this table
00FF9F00 Size of this table
0001 Number of this table

All of the info in the QWCBT00 master table is fine though as far as I can tell.

I wonder if there is a 'version' flag or something in this object?

Maybe the fact that the data at x'0000' in the QWCBTnn space is all hex zeroes IS the flag that the real data is at X'1000' instead?

Simon Coulter.
