To add to that:  QDLS is slower than the root or QOpenSys filesystems. It
also uses a different/less versatile scheme of locking objects.

Really, nobody should be using /QDLS unless, as you say, there's no
choice.  (Or, it's too much work to change your application.)  It always
frustrates me when people say that they're creating new applications that
use /QDLS.  That's like writing new software for MS-DOS 5.0.
