Problem Conclusion

Remove directory operations through IBM i NetServer fail with an
internal error return code. The failed operation returns a heap
allocation that may not belong to the process, and corruption of
the NetServer heap may result. Various NetServer operations may
then stop working.                                              
                                                               
This PTF corrects the problem.
