Strange issue after patching to CPU 24

We went from CPU 12 (I think it was) to CPU 24 and discovered a bug I didn't know existed.

If you're using ANSI SQL in prior to CPU 2, ORA-00918 Ambiguous Column may not get raised.

After patching, you'll have code that starts failing if you failed to properly alias duplicate columns.

Here's the bug:

Bug 5368296 - ANSI join SQL may not report ORA-918 for ambiguous column [ID 5368296.8]

Just wanted to pass it along.
