Why do you have to have the same library names?  Are they hard-coded in the
programs or something?  Typically this sort of thing is handled by putting
the test versions in separate libraries and using different library lists.
I don't really think there's another way to do it on the same machine until
LPAR on V4R4, IF you have multi-processor machine.
