CFINT on a 620-2179 isn't performing it's "governor" function.  The task
did exist earlier but it's usage has been "corrupted" to enforce the
interactive tax, but only in conjunction with the dummy hardware
interactive feature included on the newer systems.  Without one of those
interactive hardware features, it should not be arbitrarily impacting

You know Jan, the timing of this is great (for me) because we are on a
620-2179 and at V4R1 CFINT never seemed to do much when viewed via
WRKSYSACT. I upgraded to V4R5 in November and just noticed today (via
WRKSYSACT) that unless I was seeing things, the % for CFINT seemed to be
jumping around and it was NOT in V4R1... (? ? ?).

I was always under the impression that from the really smart folks when it
comes to this stuff (Leif, Neil, etc. <G>) that the 620-2179 was "immune"
from this ?

Comments, anyone ? :-)
