Sad and true. So much potential to waste...

The functionality is indeed great. But, oh, I have two xSeries x220 with dual Pentium IIIs back in my home country, and the amount of functionality in the setup menu is incredible. Really granular, with a helpful built-in help system, great stuff.

Or does this only affect Rexx running on Unix as per /user/lpp/netview/vXrX/bin/cnmenunix. I don't know enough to say whether or not setuid of 0 exists on OS/2 and z/OS or just z/OS.
I haven't launched anything in OS/2 in ages, and I don't think this setuid 0 concept exists there. It's just a totally different OS...
But if you need to know I can fire up my OS/2 machine, try, and let you know.
