The trigger runs in the job that does the insert (or whatever trips the
trigger), so it ought to be a simple matter of working up the call

Don't remember exactly why. I used a user space in QTEMP. If the user
space didn't exist, or the space didn't contain an expected value,
fire normally. If it did exist, and contained the expected value,
don't do anything.

Actually, in this case, we need to know what program tripped the trigger
because it's designed to veto updates unless either the user, the job,
or THE PROGRAM is on a pre-approved list.
