Well, in this case, they ARE read-only. The members in QSYSINC cannot be
changed by us mortals. And this looks like normal behavior.

The problem I have is with how it is handled - having it look like a "hard"
error when it isn't. And that it works differently between the 2 editors.

I've noticed that many communications errors or abnormal terminations cause

If CODE crashes and I go back to the recently-used list to re-open the
member, it often opens as read-only, and subsequent used of the entry on the
RUL also open the member as read-only.  Even after I go into the iSeries and
kill the server job (WRKOBJLCK is my most popular CODE command), it still
opens in the RUL as read-only.  My conclusion is that the RUL contains a
status bit indicating read-only; I have to use the command line and the "LX"
macro to open the member in update mode.  That open replaces the read-only
entry in the RUL.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] Opening system includes

Got a little funky behavior today. I have member filters for the system
includes, QSYSINC/H and QSYSINC/MIH. When I open a member with LPEX, I get
an error, saying it is read-only. Well, that's true, but it's disconcerting
to have it handled this way. It looks like a hard error, then it goes ahead
and opens it read-only.

This does not happen, using the opening with CODE.

Thanks
