Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Code that tries to allocate a CHAR string    *
    *                 with a length between 32k and 64k - which is *
    *                 invalid, of course                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Code that tried to allocate a CHAR      *
    *                      string with length bigger than 64K      *
    *                      would raise SIZE if enabled - but note  *
    *                      if the length was between 32k and 64K   *
    *                      even though that is equally invalid     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
