MainView SRM Allocation

Customer reports that when the MainVIew SRM started task (SVOS) is shutdown, the task orphans 21K of storage in CSA
Loader stubs remain after each MainView SRM (SVOS) shutdown and are chained if multiple shutdowns occur. They are vehicles to allow processes to find their way back to the original IBM modules hooked. They allow multiple vendors to work in the same space without regard to which product is started first. Vendors that do not follow such schemes require to be started first and shutdown last prior to an IPL. If the stubs did not remain in place then any allocation using the respectively hooked IBM modules abends and only IPL resolves the situation. The storage is not orphaned. It is utilized by the next startup.
