Issue:
CA InterTest for CICS 6.0 for z/VSE 6.0 stops at this Automatic Breakpoint:
"0C ABP: storage area is misspecified or does not belong to you."
at 
EXEC CICS FREEMAIN
 
Resolution:

As a circumvention you can get rid of the problem by using the following CNTL command:
CNTL=ON,PROG=pgmname,USH=ON,OVR=0C
The USH option removes storage protection from all main storage areas residing in the SHARED storage subpool. We recommend to use this option with extreme caution.
The OVR option instructs CA InterTest to ignore error conditions that would otherwise trigger an automatic breakpoint.
However, remember, OVR forces CA InterTest to ignore potentially dangerous conditions.
 
Additional Information:
We are trying to create a permanent solution. 
Check existing PTFs for CA InterTest for CICS 6.0 for VSE, please.
