DBMS_METADATA.GET_GRANTED_DDL and DEFAULT ROLE errors

Hi,

1) I have one instance that generates syntax errors with the following command:

SELECT DBMS_METADATA.GET_GRANTED_DDL('DEFAULT_ROLE', 'CBSLATE')
  FROM dual;

ALTER USER "CBSLATE" DEFAULT ROLE  ALL EXCEPT

The systax error is the 'EXCEPT' because this user has no non-default
roles. I attached ERROR OUTPUT below to show important details.

2) I can prove it with this command:

select * from dba_role_privs where grantee = 'CBSLATE';

GRANTEE                        GRANTED_ROLE                   ADM DEF
------------------------------ ------------------------------ --- ---
CBSLATE                        CONNECT                        NO  YES

1 row selected.

3) Before I file a TAR, I'm curious if this happens to others or just me?

I've attached some TEST SQL below. I checked metalink and found no
other error reports. I'm on 10.1.0.3 on rh3as u2, etc.

4) I wrote one decent version of ROLE GRANT/SYSTEM GRANT/OBJECT GRANT
using the DBMS package as well. If requested I'll post in followup.
I've seen other versions in various places on the web/docs but they
were incomplete. Please advise if anyone has other good references or
links.

Regards

Mike Thomas
