When implementing DM_AQ to push the collections payload to Oracle AQ, if the payload is having the unicode characters, sometimes the enqueue is failing with error ORA-06502.

After investigating/debugging the PORTAL_SYNC package code, the following are the findings:

- DM is calling the procedure enq_event with the flist length > 4000
- Internally the procedure is calculating the length again and getting the value as < 4000

So, it is trying to add the payload as VARCHAR2 and failing with the error below:

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Take a sample unicode message of such a length where,
     length in bytes > 4000 chars and
     length in char < 4000 chars
2. Insert such a message in AQ using pin_ifw_sync utility
