        When SDSF REXX is used and  security tracing is not enabled,
    unexpected ISF057I messages describing security  may be found in
    stem  variable ISFMSG2.   Security  tracing  is controlled  with
    special variable ISFSECTRACE.
    
        This  issue  can also  be  seen  when  using SDSF  JAVA  and
    obtaining the message list from the IsfRequestResults object.
    

Problem conclusion

  •     Module  ISFINIT has  been updated  to check  the flags  that
    represent the current setting of the ISFSECTRACE variable before
    issuing the ISF057I message.
