I think the only way to tell for sure is to get a snapshot of the program
stack when a job exhibiting the behavior you described in a DLY-30 state.

The HLL programs are not executing the DLYJOB; I suspect this is an IBM
system function within QCMDEXC - at least that is what it appears to be on
the face of it.

Jeff, It sounds as if an HLL is using QCMDEXC to do execute the DLYJOB
command.  I've run across this in early attempts to deal with file locks.
The program attempts to OPEN the file, discovers that it's allocated, does a
DLYJOB for 5 minutes and tries again.
