I guess the upgrade isn't going well for sites that make use of st_geometry:  

"Recently two ESRI customers have reported problems to ESRI Technical
Support after upgrading to Oracle The Oracle upgrade appears to be deleting some schema elements we require for the spatial type (ST_GEOMETRY). Uninstalling the upgrade to restore the prior version of Oracle does not work. ESRI is in contact with Oracle and we are working together to understand and quickly resolve the problem in this Oracle patch upgrade.

We are planning on upgrading from (the horrible version) to (the blessed version....can you see my hopes hanging high?). I've reviewed Metalink Note:555579.1 for the known issues but I would like to find out what real experience those of you who have gone through the upgrade have experienced. Ours is a 2-node Linux X86_64 cluster that utilizes ASM.

We have already upgraded single node test instances without any issues to and I haven't seen any problems but I'm interested in the RAC rollout or other issues we've yet to see.
