Perhaps it is the controlled end versus the immediate?

Question:  Does your logic check to see if there is a lock on the file, if 
so end the job and wait until the job ends?  If so, then perhaps you need 
to end the job still, but then check to see if there is still a lock on 
the file.  I wonder if the job ends enough to release the lock?

Novell pop ups delay end job request

Around 11 pm last night Novell sent a pop up message to a PC workstation 
warn the user that the server connection was going to be terminated.  No
user was around to answer the message.   The PC was also running a MAPICS
session at that time using Client Access. 

At midnight a controlled end job request (CPC1126) was issued for the 
job running on the PC but the job did not end, apparently due to the pop 
message.  Because the job did not end, we did not obtain an AS/400 backup
last night. 

I went to the PC this morning and as soon as I cleared the Novell popups,
the AS/400 job started ending (CPC1235),  followed 30 seconds later by the
job actually ending (CPF1164). There was also a popup that said Client 32:
Could not auto-connect to server HPFS_1 because logins have been disabled.

The AS/400 spent all night trying to end this session but would not end it
until I cleared the pop ups.

The network guys are skeptical that a Novell pop up can prevent the AS/400
from ending a job but are willing to work with me on this.  This is not 
first time this has happened.  Has anyone encountered this before? We run
Novell over both IP and IPX.
