May I second what Sean is asking for?
I would really appreciate a fix for R11B-5 -- we have a policy not to run 
the latest release on production systems, and absence of the patch would 
force us to do so. Make no mistake, I really like what I saw in R12 so far, 
but we'd like to migrate on our own pace.
Your cooperation will be *highly* appreciated.
