UK91190-51C FLOOD OF MSG EZY1305E FROM EZACIC02
The Listener received an exception event on this connection other than the event showing a successful take socket was issued by the server. The problem occurs when socket 0 has been given (with GIVESOCKET) to transaction WCOM and WCOM has successfully taken this socket (with TAKESOCKET). Now the CICS Listener is posted with the SELECTEX Exception bit for socket 0 and is about to clean up its control block for socket 0. But this control block is already cleared out.
