    01.Users who know an exact dataset names cannot access the data
       sets without having access to any catalog, including the one
       where that dataset is defined. Unlike ISPF, RDz always
       searches catalogs to process filters.
    02.When a user deletes .eclipse directory with all his files in
       his uss home directory and connects to RSE server, the
       syslog message ICH408I on STATVFS may be shown
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.RDz host code is updated to process filters by LOCATE macro
       if there is no wild card character in a filter string.
    02.The host module is updated to make the logging thread with
       the correct user authority be the only one that writes to
       rsecomm.log file.
