Error description

  • db2move might crash when it is writing out a message that
    contains the % character.  For example, if a DB2 database object
    has a % character in its name, and db2move encounters some
    problem (for unrelated reason) while processing the database
    object, such that it needs to write out an error message that
    contains the database object name with the % character, it might
    crash while writing out the message.
