Interesting, I'd be interested to know what IBM says about the problem.
Also, did you have Level 2/3 on the line when you brought the machine down?
They should have been able to walk you through using the disk editor (SST)
to remove the task's TDE from the task queue. I don't recall the details but
basically you go into the guts of OS/400 and rip the job out. It's ugly, but
still nicer than using the big red switch.
