IBM'S ZOS 1.13 Unix System Services (USS) running via PSOS390

When attempting to run a custom Application Engine(AE) Program using USS and IBM zOS JCL, there is an intermittent, yet growing issue where the AE is completing in USS but does not exit completed successfully, the AE hung for days, until finally noticed and forecily cancelled. 

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Submit custom AE Programs using mainframe JCL that executes BPXBATCH to spawn a PSAE process in USS.
2. Observe intermittently that some do not end
