Unfortunately it appears this will only be PTF'd to V4R1, V4R2 & V4R3
(as per APAR SA73727).
The PTF's are in test status at the moment and not generally available
yet.

Depending on how many remote writers you have, you may want to change
your startup program to start them explicitly instead of with *ALL -
which of course is a pain when you add more writers.
However, maybe if you tried STRRMTWTR name   for the ones you already
know the names of, followed by a short DLYJOB for maybe 15 seconds, then
a STRSRTWTR *ALL  you would take care of any newly created writers in
the future, and it may reduce/eliminate the chance of the problem
occuring.

As you mentioned for SA73373, SA73727 also says:
 COMMENTS:
  This PTF will limit the number of undesired writers started when
  simultaneous STRRMTWTR *ALL commands are run.  However, totally
  eliminating this occurrence is not possible.
