Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone has applied this patch yet and whether there
are any gotchas to watch out for... We upgraded from to
and so far have found 3 issues:

1) libraries in lib32 and lib still don't have read and execute
permissions to the world. Problem existed in as well!

2)      SQR failed with ORA-1790 with this simple sql statement:


                         FROM DUAL


                         SELECT ss.siteinvoiceid

                         FROM vw_inv_sitesummary ss

                         WHERE ss.invoiceid = :G_InvoiceID

The program compiled fine against the database. We had to do a
TO_NUMBER against the select from DUAL

3)      dbms_stats.export_schema_stats fails with "ORA-06502: PL/SQL:
numeric or value error" if statid had the hyphen or period included, eg.
LENG-20060925 would fail, but LENG#20060925 would work

I've logged an SR about dbms_stats but priority is at a 4, and have not
heard from anyone...
