Yes, the full Oracle version would be nice plus the select with plan the produces the proper results and one that does not.
Things you can try:
Run analyze index validate
Run analyze table validate cascade (depending on results from above) Drop and re-create index

I have anon-unique index on this column. When I run a query that uses a fast full scan to retrieve the rows, it only retrieves one of the two rows. When I force a full tablescan both of the rows come back. I have used all my sql tricks to try my best to determine if the value has trailining or leading non-printable characters and it doesn't appear so. I have also moved the values into a varchar 11 field in another table, the value is 11 chars long. Both of the duplicate rows where accepted. Does anyone know of a bug or a reason why both of the rows wouldn't appear in the index?
Thanks for your time,
