Issue/Introduction

After upgrading to CA Panvalet V14.6, a 77 PAN-VALET line is being inserted into Working Storage of COBOL programs.  Why?

Cause

In Panvalet V14.6 the Load Module Auditor Extended Feature was mistakenly distributed activated in the PANEXIT module. 

Panvalet Load Module Auditor inserts extra lines in COBOL Working Storage that start with: 77 PAN-VALET PICTURE X(24) VALUE.....

It also inserts a similar CSECT at the end of Assembler programs.
