Issue/Introduction

Problem: 

When using the CA InterTest for CICS r 8.5 or R 9.1 the CICS installation verification program COBDEMO your session hangs after you continue from the welcome screen. Instead of receiving the automatic breakpoint(ABP) with the verb Add +1 to TASKNUM highlighted  your terminal hangs. The COBDEMO program does work for unconditional breakpoints(UBP).
