With all due respect, the pending commit does have to do with the file that
is being journaled.  This is a SWA limitation, and it involves a specific
application design, and providing sufficient time in the SAVACTWAIT
parameter to let the commit cycle to complete.

Hi Mark,

I don't know if this helps but we discovered that the file with pending
changes need not be one of the files being saved.

It seems that the OS/400 save object commands, when using
can be held up by any file that is locked by a commitment control cycle,
that file is using the same journal as the objects being saved.  The
commitment control cycle does not have to directly involve one of the
being saved.
