        2) Which PTF should have been applied to get CLient Access V3R2 to
work
        properly?

I spoke with IBM about 6 weeks ago on a call concerning C/A, I was told at
that time the latest PTF was a bad one and was recommended not to apply it.
We are at SF59923 and are not having any problems.
