Personally, I never considered the behavior "wrong".
We don't use the RDi library list. We just use the "Initial command" to call a CL to do the setup.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] RSE library list problem
Although I use RDi for a couple of years, I did not yet notice the following problem before. But now I run into a problem when running a certain unit test. I always thought that the libraries that I specify at "Connection - Subsystem - Objects Tab - Library list" are used for building the library list when establishing a connection to a remote system.
But apparently that is wrong, since in fact the libraries are added to the initial library list of my user profile. For example:
The initial library list of my user profile is:
The library list of the RSE connection is:
Now, when the connection is made, the library list of the connection is:
This behavior makes it difficult to specify the proper library list for a connection. Sadly I cannot use "CHGLIBL *NONE" as the "Initial command" of the connection to clear the library list before, because the initial command is execute after the library list was built.
Of course I can fix the library list when I specify the libraries with "library position" *FIRST in reverse order. That is not nice and hard to read, but at last it works.
How do you specify the library list of your RSE connections to get the right list?
Things would be so easy if there was a checkbox "Replace initial library list" on the properties dialog of the RSE connection.
