Sys 3170 in DOSCALL1.DLL on Boot

I am running Warp 4 with fixpack 1.
Last night I installed the Netscape Navigator Plug in pack from IBM which seems to have caused a problem.
During boot up, just before the wps starts up I get a Sys 3170 in an unnamed detached process.  Details show it has something to do with DOSCALL1.DLL.
Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this?

I used to get those same problems, but mine was due to the
new CHKDSK32 from FP#3

My first suggestion is to back out of FP#1, then grab FP#4 or
#5 as soon as it is out.

If you can't do that, go to the maintainance partition and
re-install everything from there.

Btw, this also could be a problem with the new IBMS1506.ADD
file, try replacing that with the one from the floppies before
doing the above

I'm sorry, I do not think that this is a good answer.
1) The problem was caused by installing the NS Plug in pack.  Fixpack 1 was working well before this.
2) You could be right about it being something to do with IBMS1506.ADD, but it is not really pointed to as this is not replaced when installing the Plug in pack (by the way, changing it didn't make any difference).
3) A back out from Fixpack 1 or a re-install are very drastic measures to take for such a small problem

True, but this small problem being caused by the plugin pack is not as unusual as you think.

Try booting to a Maintainance desktop and removing the plug-in pack and see if that helps

I'd also agree with you on the FP#1 not being the real problem, but going to a higher FP could correct it.

Thank you for your answer.
I beleive this is one way to solve the problem, although I don't know how easy it would be to remove the plug in pack.

My solution was to run the MMOS2 install - this cured the problem (although I'm not sure why)
