     Turns out that we needed a ptf SF47884 that corrects an internal 
     counter used by QBSGET. It appears that this program would have worked 
     fine on CISC (our development machine) but fails on RISC. Still 
     crossing my fingers, but it looks like a perfect match for my problems 
     (well, one of my problems anyway <G>). Ultimately, the problem seems 
     to apply only to BSC38 communications support. Maybe I can convert 
     these to use ICF instead of BSCF38 sometime.......
     
     Thanks for the response,
     Erica (with a silent "a") ;]

Hey erica (Just Kiddin Eric;>)
You probably have a data error on the target machine. Or possibly they have made
a
change. Here is my standard advice as a first step in COMM programs. Use System 
Service Tools (STRSST), and set up a communications  trace on the the Bisync 
controller and/or devices. Vary the line/ctl/dev on, then fire up your bisync 
app
(From another session) As soon as the error appears, stop the trace. You can 
then
format & print the trace. (I suggest taking all the "Y"s you can) The output 
will
show both data and control information. By examining these items, you can 
probably
find the problem, even with little or no Comm experience.
     
If that doesn't help clear the problem, you can call me at (713)582-6754 or page
me
at (713)786-6166 (after 0900 CST please!) and I'll lend a hand. 
Good Luck,
Bob
