CPU July 2005 patch set for Application Server Windows has a problem

Looks like the latest - (broken link) security patch set CPU July 2005 has yet again got some problems. Oracle has sent out an email to all customers that have downloaded patch 4393850 for Oracle Application Server version on Windows before it was re-uploaded on September 1 2005. A bug has been found where Forms returns an error FRM-92100 when a query has been executed and the CPU July 2005 patch had been applied.

Oracle inform customers to install the new version of the patch if it has not been installed already, if it has been installed then it needs to be rolled back and the new version applied.
