Enhance CSQ4LOGS program to handle messages put with MQPUTPRP verb

I have clients who have lost messages either through human error (deletion) or through problems with CSQLOAD and other IBM programs. The client has requested that I recover the messages. I have been able to successfully extract messages from the MQSeries logs (z/OS) using the CSQ1LOGP program and then reload them back onto the queue using CSQ4LOGS.

However, if the messages were put to the queue with properties (MQPUTPRP verb), program CSQ4LOGS will not process the messages and put them back on the queue (after being extracted to a file).

It was suggested (IBM Incident) that I simply edit the extract file containing the messages that I pulled from the log and change the MQPUTPRP verb to MQPUT. This allowed the CSQ4LOGS program to process the messages and put them back on the queue; however, they were GARBAGE - they did not resemble the original message for some reason.

I would like IBM to enhance the CSQ4LOGS program to allow all messages to be played back to the queue.
