Hi Martin,

OSS suggested to roll back the patch, and reinstate it. Since the system hasn't been in production yet, I decided to reinstall the whole RDBMS and patch it prior to instance generation. This worked very well.

The only "other" Oracle software on the RAC was the 10g grid control agent in a different agent_home directory.
