The site upgraded to PeopleTools 8.53 and all COBOL are failing.  For example, when site runs PTPDBTST, a simple COBOL that tests the connection to the database, it says successful but upon examining the log, the following error is seen in the log.  This was working before the PT 8.53 upgrade, but it has not worked since then.    

The Remote Call Test button does not work. It produces the following error: "(2,-1) FUNCLIB_UTIL.RC_TEST_PB.FieldChange  PCPC:2143  Statement:26"

Error from the PTPDBTST log file :
28896: 1382033919: PSPAL::Abort: Unexpected signal received
28896: 1382033919: PSPAL::Abort: Location: /vob/peopletools/src/pspal/exception_sigaction.cpp:494: RecoverableSignalHandler
