We are using 3 different 400s for Y2K testing.  We found whenever we rolled
the date backwards, our SNADS failed to transmit and we got some "flaky"
jounaling results.  Also, it confused the heck out of our operators since all
of the old messages in QSYSOPR were now imbedded in the new messages.
We decided that every time we start a new Y2K test, we o a scratch reload
from a tape saved in the current year before we roll into the future.
