We've done the same thing here, and occasionally I've run into a small
problem. Normally, when I sign on I go to QINTER, which I assumed was
because the other subsystem was named QXXISD , which is later in the
alphabet. But sometimes I can't sign on with my regular workstation device
name, and when I change the name and get on I discover that my regular
device has been locked by some job in QXXISD, even though there appears to
be nothing running in QXXISD. If I stop and restart QXXISD, everything is
fine again. This doesn't happen every time, but it tends to average 2-3
times a month.

Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this, and whether
there is a fix?
