Some guesses:

Is it possible that there are two OE300L print files on the system?  One
with DEVTYPE(*SCS) and one with DEVTYPE(*AFPDS)?   Maybe differing library
lists explain why it works differently for you than it does for the
customer?

Otherwise, could the customer have done an OVRPRTF FILE(*PRTF)
DEVTYPE(*AFPDS) for use with another application?   Maybe he's running
code that does this, and he doesn't even know it?
