Error description

  • If the name of the Remote Systems Explorer (RSE) connection to
    the IBM i in RDP contains an ampersand ('&') character then when
    a program or service program hits an active Service Entry Point
    (SEP) the program will stop and wait for the debugger but the
    debug session will not be activated.
    
    Examination of the workspace Error Log will contain
    "!MESSAGE Could not parse the kicker XML stream"
    followed by a stack trace showing an XML parser error.
    

Local fix

  • Change the name of the RSE connection to remove any special
    characters including the '&' character.
