Better problem determination when error message is returned to the job submitter

When running a loader job that fails on authorization the submitter of the job does not get a proper message. The message emitted by the IDAA Loader is "HLOU5715E Unknown error during IDAA validation". This is in par with the famous Microsoft Windows message "An error has occurred", and you can also get the impression that there is some kind of IDAA error.
The error is known and a far more helpful message is emitted in the SYSPRINT of the HLO address space saying "AQT10413E The Db2 real-time statistics could not be externalized." together with other information.

    We area removing the need for the authorization required that caused this message. Other authorization needs are spelled out more clearly in error messages.
