Up until now I have been confused by this discussion. Perhaps I still am.
The reason to change the effective group profile of the job is to get more
or less authority. The only time authority is derived from a profile or
group profile is at runtime. So if the effective group profile is different
at the time you do DSPMODSRC than it is at STRDBG then what you are seeing
may make perfect sense.
