EOF BEFORE EOR OR FILE OPEN IN WRONG MODE

We are running AIX 4.3.3 on an RS6000.  One of our software products was bombing out and via a capture we were able to see the error message EOF BEFORE EOR OR FILE OPEN IN WRONG MODE.  The software vendor claims it is an OS system error and they cannot fix it.  Everything I have seen points to it being a COBOL runtime error.  Does anyone know definitively what is correct?

It would help to know what the software is.  I am guessing from the word "capture" that you are pulling info off of a 390 for use with some CTI App that screen scrapes

I had accepted qriessh's response several days ago.  For some reason it has not been awarded to him.  To clarify for s_miller the software is a clusterf*** of COBOL programs which leads me to believe the error is from COBOL as it is a runtime error for a specific variety of COBOL.  The capture is the stream from a telnet session.
