Unanswered: metalink says upgrade
We're consistently getting an ORA-00600 error in a newly migrated application, where we're on db version 10.1.0.3, and metalink suggests an upgrade to 10.1.0.4 (https://metalink.oracle.com/metalink...0,1,helvetica).
This is the first upgrade we've performed. As I'm looking through metalink to see if we should take advantage of the downtime to go to the newest 10.1 patch, it appears that bugs are introduced in every patchset. Are we better off just upgrading to 10.1.0.4, or looking to a newest patchest 10.1.0.5?
Also, if we apply the 10.1.0.5 patchset to 10.1.0.3, does that include the fixes included in the 10.1.0.4 patchset?

I really don't mean this to be flippant, but can you afford the time to go to 10.2.0.3?
I ran on 10.1.x for about 8 months before getting so aggravated with issues, bugs and general headaches.
Went to 10.2.0.x and...peace. Mostly. There's one -600 error that crops up occasionally, but it does not appear to interfere with anything. I called it in, it matched a known issue and Oracle classified it as non-disruptive.
If you can afford the time, 10.2.x is much nicer...
