    While providing a very long description to the "profile"
    keyword of the WS file, memory overflow occurs with PCOMM.
    

Problem conclusion

  • PCSPREF.DLL has been changed to use a specific API call to read
    only the number of bytes required to access the "profile" data
    from the session WS file.
