Symptoms

When running Oracle Streams on 11.2.0.1 RAC, restarting capture results in it hanging in the following state:

WAITING FOR DICTIONARY REDO: FIRST SCN XXXX

where XXXX corresponds to the DBA_CAPTURE.FIRST_SCN for the capture process. The steps in Note 313279.1: Master Note for Troubleshooting Streams capture 'WAITING For REDO' or INITIALIZING do not help.
