Patch ID: 146905-01

* 2492602 (Tracking ID: 2424805)

SYMPTOM:
When the Oracle owner uses CSH shell, Oracle agent fails after an
upgrade to version 5.0MP3RP5.

DESCRIPTION:
When an user does not specify the EnvFile attribute or does not set the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable in the specified EnvFile, the Oracle startup operation
fails. During the startup operation the agent uses the setenv command to set the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to the list of library paths consisting of
user-specified and pre-defined values. User-defined values are listed before
pre-defined values. If the user-specified value is not available in the EnvFile,
the agent sets the user-specified value to NULL. However, the setenv command
does not accept NULL as the first value in the list of library paths and hence
the agent fails.

RESOLUTION:
We have moved user-specified values at the end of the library path list.
