Here's the official word from the CRTLIB help on the LIB parameter:
   Note:  You should not use a name that begins with the 
          character Q.  The system assumes that libraries 
          with those names are system libraries.

Your only "recovery" from the current situation is to rename the library
to something that doesn't start with 'Q'.

Probably not what you wanted to hear, eh?  <g>
