APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
From RFE 124253:

You can press F9 to recall previously entered commands for a
particular job. However, if you press F9 one too many times and
go past the command you want, you must either keep pressing F9
until you loop through all commands entered or blank the command
line and start again.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE72057 :
-----------------------------
You can now press the F8 key to retrieve commands in the
opposite direction from F9.  F8 will return the command after
the previously returned command. If F8 is pressed without having
previously retrieved a command, the first command is returned.
This support works on UIM panels and menus that have F9 assigned
to retrieve commands and do not already have a function assigned
for the F8 key.

You can type the start of a command string followed by an
asterisk (*) on the command line and press F9 to retrieve the
last command that begins with the specified text.  If F9 is
pressed again, the previous command that starts with the
specified text is shown.  If F9 is pressed after the first
matching command has been returned, or there are no matching
commands, matching is turned off and the most recent command is
returned.

This PTF can be applied immediate.  The change will not be seen
in command lines that were already displayed before the PTF was
applied.
