My QINTER has been up since Sunday night (it's now Friday morning)
I have a *ALL workstation type in QINTER.
I start an emulation session, get to a sign-on display and it's QINTER,
QPADEV0024.
I create a new subsystem BUCK and ADDWSE SBSD(BUCK) WRKSTN(QPADEV0024).
STRSBS BUCK.
The emulation session now reads BUCK QPADEV0024.
ENDSBS BUCK.
The emulation session now reads QINTER QPADEV0024.

I don't think this is a timing issue in how long it takes QINTER to process
it's list of eligible devices.  I think it's a case of "the last subsystem
to ask for a device gets it."  I'm sure there's no guarantee, but I've been
starting my "special" subsystems last since S/38 days, and not had a problem
with devices in the wrong subsystem.

When I need a guarantee, I use the initial program.
