Our software doesn't do that and I would say it is not common.

Roger,

I've had similar experience with a package we have.  Luckily we have the
source, so there are problems I can debug.  Unfortunately, it uses a lot of
CallPath program calls I'm not familar with.  There's one other thing they
do that I have never seen done before and I'd like to find out if it's
common practice.  They compile all of their programs with "Ignore decimal
data error *yes".  So a lot of times if there's a problem, it doesn't show
up in that program but in the one that calls their program.  Is this common?

Jill
