There is a price to be paid trying to put any release of any software into production immediately. New releases are generally put on development and testing boxes and not moved to production until proven stable. I might note for you that Oracle Corp., itself, has yet to put Oracle 9i into production with its own 11i applications.

So if you are running ahead of Oracle then one might ask why?

And if you are finding bugs such as you discuss in production ... once again one might ask why? Don't you try software out in development and test environments first?
