We have a program that is bound to the ZLIB service program. If we specify the library for ZLIB on the CRTPGM, then a DSPPGM on it shows that it's bound to ZLIB in that library, as expected.

Likewise, I ran a test CRTPGM, binding the program to ZLIB in *LIBL, both with and without having a copy of ZLIB in the target library, and in both cases, a DSPPGM on the resulting program showed that it was bound to ZLIB in *LIBL.

Yet we recently created another program, explicitly bound to *LIBL/ZLIB in the CRTPGM, and yet a DSPPGM on it shows it bound to ZLIB in a specific library, and we can't explain why.

The only thing that might have been different is that *possibly* the CRTPGM (called from within a CL program) may have initially failed to find the service program, and then been given a RETRY response after the service program was copied into the target library. Or the program may have been regenerated since then. (I'm not sure; I wasn't the one who did it.)
