Try importing first with a SHOW=Y to make sure there is no corruption in the export file.

  Some consultants have arrived with an export file from a 7.3.4 database. We must import this file into an database (identical to the scenario that Dennis Taylor posted). Every time I import this file, I get a "Memory Fault (coredump)" error. There is no trace file, no alert log entry, just a core file.
  I am doing a full import. I have tried creating the schema owner and importing using TOUSER, but I still get the coredump. I have checked kernel parameters (this is a new system). I have relinked Oracle. I have increased the SGA and tablespaces, but to no avail. We installed 8.0.5 on the same machine, and imported the file with no problem. We exported it from 8.0.5 and tried the full import into 8.1.6, but we still get the coredump.
  I did manage to import a different export file that the consultants brought with them (from 8.0.5) into a seperated 8.1.6 database.   I have logged a TAR, but thought I would run it by the real experts for some suggestions.
  This is a new install of 8.1.6, patched to on a cluster running Tru64 version 5.1.
