Hi Niall, thanks for raising this.

The whole release management of Oracle patches by the vendor is very
confusing even for oracle support analysts. I logged an SR about if we have
to apply patch 6038279 on top of CpuApril2007 (5916268 aka 9208 patch 6) and
the analyst told me that CpuApril2007 for 9208/win32 and patch *8* are one
and the same which is obviously NOT the case.

I am trying to explain to Oracle that their communication on patches are
sometimes very confusing and we customers have to figure out a lot
ourselves. It's difficult to assess patches if information from the vendor
is incomplete.

If you are

   - running windows 32bit
   - and
   - and have kept up to date with CPU patching.

you will wish to download and test Patchset 8 patch 6038279 to resolve the
issues addressed in Note *434527.1.** **W*itout this patch it is likely
that your database is unrecoverable.
