Ticket has been opened a MOS hopefully get an answer, client not in extended support, so I expect to have some fight with support.
UPDATE 12 march 2012 :
Development is working a merge patch for this issue. hopefully this will not raise more issue than it solves
UPDATE 14 march 2012 :
Nial Litchfield made a very good point:
“@pfierens @jarneil am I reading that correctly? To backport RAT requires removing previous mainline patches? Or are the old ones one-offs?”
and indeed two of the patches :
6069085 and 5998544 are part of bigger recommended patch bundles with regards of Logical and Physical Standby (6081550 and 6081547 )
