Thank you, gazzag, for your kind remarks. Thank you Steve and Mark, for your observations.

I have read much documentation, but the complete answers were not entirely apparent, at any rate to me. I shall read with interest the white paper which Steve mentions.

Steve's remark about Oracle possibly not supporting locking the SYSTEM account is a little worrisome. Maybe I'll raise a SR - and report back.
