Description

Locks would remain after a file is closed. 


Previous Release Behavior

When a file was closed as shown below, any locks would remain as the file cacheing would prevent the file from being closed. 

OPEN "file" TO DSCB ELSE STOP 201,"file"
READU rec FROM DSCB,"key" ELSE NULL
DSCB = 0 ;* This would normally close the file and release the locks


Current Release Behavior

If the closed file has taken any locks at any time, then a check is made for those locks and the equivalent of a RELEASE filevar statement is executed.
