When a user compiles a program with any of the release 9.1 post processors they may see the following messages:

SYM099 CAMRCOB2 MAXPGMVER WAS REACHED - OLDEST VERSION HAS BEEN DELETED and SYM014 PROTSYM OUT OF SPACE.

If a new program is added to PROTSYM via Post-processing and the MAXPGMVER  number is reached for the program, the space occupied by the oldest version is not released.  

An IN25UTIL REPORT of the PROTSYM file shows a combination of USED and FREE record statistics do not equal TOTAL RECORDS and the difference grows as more programs are added.

This problem has been corrected with test fix TR81450 which at some point will be published as RO81450.
