    ****************************************************************
    SESSION formatting option for PFSMIN  component trace generates
    incorrect output and fails with an abend0C4.
    
    The SESSION formatting option for the SYSTCPIP component trace
    containing PFSMIN trace entries for readv or writev socket
    calls do not format correctly.  The formatted output for these
    entries will contain "Record Corrupted - Unknown PFS Entry"
    and will exceed the report line length.  The report line overrun
    results in an abend0C4 when scrolling to the end of the report
    or when the report is exited.
    
    Example report (lines truncated):
    IP CTRACE COMP(SYSTCPIP) SUB((TCPIP)) OPTIONS((SESSION))
