    -Debug Tool Coverage Utility annotated listing for assembler
     truncated because of misidentified MACRO/MEND statement.
     (PI76617 at 12.1)
    
    -The input field pDsnStat in panel EQAPMPSL for Debug Tool is
     too short causing the DATASET NAME to be truncated in the
     Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility.
     (PI77408 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool does not show all of multiple CSECTS if
     configuration file with multiple commands is used.
     (PI77399 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility uses delay debug
     option which conflicts with the EQAOPTS delay debug option.
     (PI80811 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool fails with ABENDS0C4 in EQA0SBPP+'1C3E' in remote
     debug session start up.
     (PI78394 at 13.1)

    -Debug Tool: SVC Screening ON - abend when multitasking is done
     via ATTACH.
     There are different scenarios which will be fixed with this
     APAR:
      Debug Tool: ABEND in IMS application when started with
      EQANMDBG.
      Debug Tool: ABENDS0C4 when returning from subtask.
     (PI78905 at 13.1)
    
    -Program Check at EQARCL4+'11497C'x when COBOL V5 or higher
     program uses user-defined Unicode Codepage.
     (PI79945 at 13.1)
    
    -Using the Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility, in
     some circumstances, the messages stay in the IMS input queue
     or input buffer after the debug session has been terminated.
     (PI80815 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool, with the IMS Transaction Isolation Facility, can
     still remain active after a stop of the IMS sub-region.
    
     The panel "IMS Transaction Isolation Facility" shows that the
     sub-region has been stopped. In the panel "SDSF active user"
     it can be observed that the sub-region is still
     present/running.
    
     This can happen, for example, when the user makes the "stop"
     of the IMS sub-region in the TSO interface while the process /
     program is stopped on a breakpoint in the Debug Perspective
     within the RDz interface.
    
     (PI80876 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility: Don't allow
     DEREGISTER if private MPR is still started.
