Due to an newly discovered issue* with Oracle in Hotfix 5 we recommend Oracle customers to install hotfix 3 only. If you already have installed HF 5 you can rollback to HF 3 by replacing the assemblys and make the correct assembly redirects in web.config. No need to run any sql querys since the database version is the same. 

*0048215: Oracle: Modifying a LOB requires that the connection be transacted

This issue is only in Hotfix 5 and is causing problems with Workflows, Dynamic property of type longstring and EPiBooking.
