Here's the best part.  Oracle now has *two ways* of sending patches out to
us.  One is the current (old) way where you run oracle installer.  The other
(new) way is where you run Opatch.  And even within Opatch, they do things
two different ways.  Security Patch 68 has you run sqlplus and install new
packages, and then run patch.csh - which runs sqlplus and installs stuff.

How many monkees work at Oracle?  Seems like the bad old days are
reappearing - where the divisions are not talking to each other anymore, and
they release stuff that is not ready for prime time.  I *hate* being forced
to apply patches (Security Patch 68) because they didn't test their own
software well enough.

Tom and Paul,
Thanks for the feedback...looks like I will have to follow my original plan
to upgrade to and apply the security patches, as well as the patch
for that index corruption bug.  Now I just have to figure out if it's okay
to apply those patches together :-).  The fun never ends...

Best regards,
