Symptoms

In Oracle Reports 10g release 2 (v. 10.1.2.x.x), when trying to run a report to desformat=SPREADSHEET that produces large amounts of rows, the engine will stop and the job fails to complete.  The same issue can also happen for large datasets with desformat=DELIMITED.

If running with rwrun, the executable just goes away and there is no error or hs_err_pid.log.

Examples/Scenarios

* The engine crashes (without tracing turned on) in 13 seconds(*) with: 

REP-177:  Error while running in remote server
rwEng-0 crashed, job id: 1

 * With tracing turned on, the server/engine may hang with 100% cpu utilization for at least 15 minutes (*).

(*) Times may vary on different reports and different systems

The trace results may display:

[yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss:xxx] Exception 50125 (org.omg.CORBA.COMM_FAILURE:
