Hi Casey,
  Somebody in Oracle support once jokingly mentioned that the even numbered 
patchsets were more stable than the odd numbered ones. 
  Not sure if that had much credence  but I know a couple of things that broke 
after applying the patchset.

Just trying to get a feel for community comfort w/9207 in prod. We're looking 
to get off 9204 and now have approval to proceed through the dev/uat/svt and 
prod envs. I say 9207 as our initial push occurred prior to the recent (Aug 
24th) release of 9208 for our port (Solaris 64bit). The databases house OLTP 
and DW type apps in the multi-TB range. Note we're tied to 9iR2 due to vendor 

We're still early enough in the game to choose 9208 - but 9207 should likewise 
be sufficient. We've got anecdotal evidence of "issues" w/9207, but nothing 
really concrete. Hence, I would like to see what the broader community thinks. 
Good, bad, indifferent ... ??

Any and all input will be greatly appreciated.
