Fix is checked in and will be included with edir8739_ftf2 which is soon to be released. If this abend is occuring and you need the patch sooner, please contact Novell Technical Support.

Additional Information

The abend was occuring because in the code ds was trying to deregister itself from rollcall.nlm and also rollcall was trying to deregister ds.nlm as well. As a result the server would choke trying to clear up the memory twice.
