APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
InfoPrint server incorrectly converts Postscript/PCL to AFP
data and
msgPQT2550 is posted by PSF.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE34632' :
-------------------------------
Apply this PTF if you are using IBM Infoprint Server to
transform PCL, PostScript, or PDF data to AFP.
This PTF provides a several fixes to the datastream
transform.

The following problems have been corrected.

1. A condition where the transform was not managing buffers
correctly has been corrected.  Previously this resulted in a
hang condition or a PQT2250 datastream error from PSF.
2. 1200 dpi is no longer accepted as a valid output resolution.
Previously, 1200 dpi was accepted and the transform would hang.
Now, message IPS2015 is issued with an internal message id text
of: CLT-00144-1200DPI-NOT-VALID.   The most common way to
request 1200dpi is with image configuration object *IMGC08.
3. A problem with the transform hanging when the system values
for locale changed the decimal separator to something other than
a period has been corrected.
4. Additional messages from the transform that were previously
lost are now being captured.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE34632' :
