DESCRIPTION: I have a customer that would like to be able to control which tuxedo application a user accesses by changing the value of TUXCONFIG, In his process he is setting the value of TUXCONFIG to a valid value and then he calls tpchkauth() to get the security level this works fine. The customer then passes in, through his program, a new value for TUXCONFIG sets the value in the environment using tpsetenv() and then call tpchkauth() again to get connected to a different tuxedo application. The call to tpchauth() returns the auth level returned by the previous call. I set up the sample code provided by the customer and ran it through debugger to get a better understanding of what tpchkauth() does. If tpchkauth() has an invalid reference to the tuxconfig file it fails, if tpchkauth() has a correct value for tuxconfig it stores the value in the TUX context and continues on, subsequent calls to tpchkauth() return this value, even after changing the value of TUXCONFIG environment variable using tpsetenv(). During subsequent calls to tpchkauth() the value of TUX->_TUX__tmauthlev is evaluated to see if it is != -1, if this is true then tpchkauth() returns the current value.
