 for logins/queries/updates/etc.
The program works fine when running interactively in that it handles all the
 situations that could occur during login. i.e.  invalid username and/or
 password, password expired, account disabled, etc.

 parent of which is a detached process), does not work. SYS$ACMW always returns
 a status of ACME$_CONTACTSYSMGR (122332922).
