You'll probably need to add the entry for SCAN* *ENTER to QINTER in order to 
accommodate the existing *ALL entry. This tells QINTER that it's okay for SCAN* 
devices to request entry to QINTER by TFRJOB, but that it shouldn't explicitly 
try to allocate them at startup.

One thing that's made me wonder is that claims are made that the _last_ 
subsystem to start is the one that succeeds in startup allocation. That seems 
to be not totally true though I can't prove it at the moment. I'd swear that it 
works more like this:


Although OTHERSBS started last, QINTER typically is processing a long list of 
potential workstations due to a *ALL entry while OTHERSBS only has a few. 
OTHERSBS finishes all its startup work quickly while QINTER is still chugging 
along. If the OTHERSBS workstations are towards the end of the QINTER list, 
those can still be allocated to QINTER unless *ENTER explicit handling is 
stated in a workstation entry.
