Oh god, I'd hoped those PTF horrors were long dead by now. I'll try to see
what I can remember.
Each OPS PTF ships a save file which contains the actual files along with
a manifest of what it shipped. On PTF apply, the old files are read from
the manifest and removed, then the updated save file is restored. It seems
like the PTF removed the old files correctly, but failed to restore the
new save file for some reason. I seem to recall there was a program which
is called from the PTF exit, which I think we added later. Maybe a prereq
got missed somewhere and that never got installed? (I'd assume all the OPS
PTFs we ever shipped made it in to the final CUME)
You could try running the following to emulate what the install exit/PTFs

(The path needs to be 39 characters long so I just padded it out an
arbitrary amount)
That's about as much as I can remember. Hope that helps, but it really is
time to move on from 7.1 It's been out of support for nearly 3 years now:
