Other little things:

SQL statements changing from 'soft' errors to hard halts.

IBM adding reserved words to SQL. For example,
select RID from FRT...
where RID was the 'active record code' that we're all so familiar with.
And now RID is a new SQL reserved word. That statement didn't blow up
until you tried to recompile it.
Simple change: select "RID" from FRT...
That one would be FUN for regression testing to catch. Does recompiling
everything become part of regression testing? Or is it assumed that this
falls outside of the scope of the general user experience?
