This was not my experience on a V4R4 (V4R5?) system.  Batch job entered a loop
and was spitting out job logs consistently until we stopped it.  A couple
thousand job logs were deleted and we did not regain the disk space until the
spool storage was reclaimed.

Also, if the system were to run as you suggest, then what would be the purpose
of the reclaiming storage command?
