What I find confusing is that there are many cases in which the text  
within the APAR itself says it's been fixed in a particular version,  
but if you then look in the overall list of APARs by Fix Pack, you  
find it in a different version. Or not at all.

Case in point. Text says 4a, but the list of APARs by Fix Pack lists  
it under 5.

I don't see it included in the 9.5 list of APARs by Fix Pack.

While that's what the APAR says, the dates it lists are more in line  
with Fix Pack 17 (Fix Pack 16 came out in February 2008, 17 in  
September 2008, and the issue was apparently submitted May 2008). In  
addition, the APAR itself is listed under Fix Pack 17 on the list of  
Version 8 list of APARS by Fix Pack.

It's not in the 9.1 list of APARs by Fix Pack.
