I have no Idea on that.  I do know of another case where value wasn't being
specified and it caused trouble.  You might put this out on the list and
maybe Hans from IBM will be able to answer that question for you.  Glad that
you got it working.  It is such a great tool.  By doing the transfer of data
between our AS/400 system and unix system this way really help the
reliability.
