Remember, that early on in the life of V5R3 IBM had some silly autostart job or something that would change it back to "restrict rename and unlink" upon each IPL. I had them create a ptf that changed that so that it only changed the properties upon the initial install of V5R3 and would leave it changed back, if you changed it back.

As Johnny Carson was so fond of saying,

"I did not know that!"

Normally, I'd ask why IBM would make an OS change that killed MSF, and then add an autostart job that would re-assert the damage if somebody fixed it, but then again, I was responsible for something even more incredibly stupid about a week and a half ago, so I'll keep my big mouth shut.
