Some of you may recall this thread where I was trying to restore and recover a
64 bit database to a 32 bit server:

It just plain didn't work, at least with those versions.

It was documented to work, but it didn't

Today I had occasion to do much the same thing. The difference is that now rather than database, it is a database.

Worked perfectly using RMAN DUPLICATE.

MOS Doc 62290.1 has instructions for recompiling PL/SQL.

Just thought it would be nice to document it here for posterity. :)
