I've got an RPG program accessing IFS STMFs (using techniques based on
Scott Klement's ebook), and it was working perfectly as recently as this
past March.

I've been informed (rather belatedly!) that it has stopped working,
failing to open the STMFs it was opening just fine, a few months ago.

When I investigated, I added code to check the C errno after a failed
open(), and it's coming back 3490, "econv."

The OFLAGS on the open are O_TEXTDATA + O_RDONLY; the STMF's CCSID is 1208.

Anybody got a clue what I should be looking for?
