OK Folks,

I'm obviously overlooking something here, so perhaps someone out there can
point me in the right direction.  I have a user profile defined as user class
*SECOFR, with *ALLOBJ special authority (among others) on a CISC system
running V3R2 of OS/400.  Suddenly, perhaps after a PTF application, this user
profile can no longer perform CHGUSRPRF or WRKDIRE -- it gets a "*SECADM
special authority required" message for both functions.  As far as I can
tell, both commands are still at the same factory default authority settings
that they were when this profile _WAS_ able to perform these functions.

Under the old V2 releases, a profile like this could have changed the QSECOFR
password.  So what gives?
