ECC 6.0 runtime abort -- "You cannot specify a length <= 0"


We have just now installed the new ECC 6.0 system and have begun testing our custom applications against it.

We have immediately encountered a new and strange runtime abort: SYNTAX_ERROR "You cannot specify a length <= 0" during a CALL FUNCTION.

Most of the parameters are CHAR. The only parameters which are not CHAR are two NUM Year/Month IMPORTING parameters containing valid values and a return code EXPORTING parameter defined \TYPE=SYSUBRC.

This CALL FUNCTION works correctly in ECC 5.0

Do you know why this is happening and what it is referring to?
