SEC612R is owned by QDFTOWN; the program object's user profile is *USER (vs.

QDFTOWN is a *USER with Special Authorities = *NONE

Any other ideas?

Who owns the SEC612R program?  Is the user profile attribute of the program
set to *USER or *OWNER?  If *OWNER then what authorities does the owning
profile have?

All programs default to "Use adopted authority *YES".  That doesn't mean they
have any special rights.  It simply means IF authority is already being
adopted by a program higher in the call stack then this program will also use
that adopted authority.  The real question is whether the SEC612R program
adopts its OWNER'S authority and if that owner is QGOD.
