If you haven't already, please check out this same subject on the CODE400-L
midrange.com mailing list archive.  The answer is there.  The problem lies
in iSeries Access service packs greater than SI04684.  The best workaround
is to uninstall the service pack to get back to SI04684.  If you cannot
uninstall through the Start menu or want the latest, then use CL GUI
prompting (yes, GUI prompting is lacking, I know).  I know hangups are a
serious issue but if there are workarounds available, we can deal with it.
All we can do is be patient and let them have the time they need to fix it
the right way.  I'm the one who submitted this problem to IBM and I
consider this one of the inevitable drawbacks of being on the leading (and
sometimes bleeding) edge.  I think it is all worth it in light of the heavy
resources IBM has poured into CODE/400, Eclipse, iSeries Access, etc.  They
have huge projects on their shoulders and all kinds of priorities.  One of
the sayings they have here in Indiana is, "I'd rather have a combine that
occasionally dies than have to pick the darn corn by hand."  Okay, that is
probably not a saying, but, I think you get the idea.

service pack."  Don't ask me when it's scheduled; I haven't a clue.

Calling EVFCTCPD.EXE a "daemon" is an understatement...and you're not
enough blood.  Don't forget to hop around on one foot while you do it; that
usually works for me.

Have a nice holiday!
