message: IBM claims that V3R2M0 is compliant, and that V3R1M0 is not. Exact 
what and why I don't know (does a list exist?).

Expect greater problems with your application software if it is in any way 
complicated or not very new.

Coming to Confirmation: You can do a CHGSYSVAL QDATE and hope to find (and fix) 
as many problems as possibly, but you can't find all. After all it's the nature 
of our job: There will always be a problem to work with, even after 99.12.31, 
though in my work 80% of the problems found during Y2K testing was old non-y2k 
problems. Fortunately we often decide not to solve all of theese, so if the 
unfound y2k-problems will be few, there is enough to work with anyway.

After testing, change the date back and do an IPL with a scratch-install. 
Everything - not just data used in the test - need to be reinstalled.
