    *                 - 5.1.8.3: Tru64                             *
    *                                                              *
    *                 - 5.2.5.4: AIX 32-bit, HP PA-RISC, Solaris,  *
    *                   Windows x32                                *
    *                                                              *
    *                 - 5.3.6.6: AIX 32-bit, HP PA-RISC, Linux     *
    *                   x86, Linux zSeries, Solaris, Windows x32,  *
    *                   Windows x64, and TSM Express 5.3.6.6       *
    *                   client package                             *
    *                                                              *
    *                 Note: for TSM Express users, this APAR is    *
    *                 also included in TSM client version 5.3.6.5  *

    *                 server package. However, IBM recommend       *
    *                 using the 5.3.6.6 client since that level    *
    *                 contains other recommended APAR fixes as     *
    *                 well.                                        *
    *                                                              *
    *                 Note that until the fixing levels are        *
    *                 actually made available, this information is *
    *                 subject to change at the discretion of IBM.  *
