: Well this adds a bit of confusion alright.  Maybe "mklvcopy" wasn't even 
: relevant to the issue as specified in the IBM report, so it could be an 
: entirely different issue.  Dunno...

The original text with that APAR suggested a customer submitted it, and 
they may have noticed the behavior via the mklvcopy command. After 
research from IBM, they likely found the underlying issue elsewhere and 
updated the text. That is what I am assuming.. and if true, discouraging 
that they removed details that are likely relevant.
