Yes - the problem is when you IPL to the 'A' you're only back to where
you were as far as LIC PTF's (57xx-999) are concerned.  All your
Operating System PTF's (57xx-SS1) and others that are temporarily
applied are still active when you IPL on the A side.  Of course it IS
easier to identify which PTF's were part of the cum package if you apply
all previous PTF's permanently before applying the new package (although
I seldom bother with that, you can DSPPTF to an outfile and query the
date applied to find the same information), as they will be the only
ones Temporarily Applied, so it would be easier to remove them all
(individually) if you had to !   :-)
