I am not a developer so I had not seen your issue but I have some questions that might help you get a response:

Are you running the server based or client based version of Forms 6? Are you running character based or GUI?
What is the full Oracle version of the database? What is the full Oracle version of the client?

We run server based character mode 6i and in the past we had an issue that if we did an rlogin and then executes our Forms based application you would get an error. When you log in directly to the application server and run from there it ran fine. Your issue seems similar, but our solution was just to login directly and run locally.

With the above information it should be possible to search My Oracle Support and see if you can find any matching error reports.

You probably should have posted this to rather than misc but most of the views are the same people so I am not sure reposting is necessary though that would be up to you.
