How are you defining the length parameter (parameter 4)? This should be 4
byte binary. The length must be in the range 0-32767, i.e. hex 00000000 -
00007FFF. If, for example, you are passing a zoned decimal number it will
be interpreted as an invalid length. So a zoned 5 would be F0F0F0F5, which
would be interpreted in binary as a very large negative number, and
therefore invalid.
