Here's an interesting situation - we use QEXCVTDV to retrieve the old S/36
workstation ID in a CL program. This has been working fine for a few years.
We've now defined a few new workstations (sessions) at a new location, and
they are working great except QEXCVTDV is returning "0" (zero - Unknown).
The CL program is still working fine for everyone else - just not for the
new workstations.

I'm wondering if it has something to do with the naming convention. The new
workstation sessions all start with RWPC. I'm not at the new remote site,
or else I could define a new session (call it "FRED" or something) and see
if that makes a difference.

I will probably have to change the CL program logic to used some other
method (which is certainly feasible), but this issue really has me curious.
We're currently on 7.1. And yes, I have searched the archives, and Googled
it. No soap.

As always, any thoughts are appreciated.
