Attempting to perform an online move of a table and it's lob columns with DBMS_REDEFINITION to a new tablespace does not move the segments if non-system generated names are used for the lob segments.

The COPY_TABLE_DEPENDENTS function  fails with  ORA-936 when the table contains a named lob segment,

redefinition_errors PLS_INTEGER := 0;
DBMS_REDEFINITION.copy_table_dependents(uname => 'TEST',
orig_table => 'ORIGINAL',
int_table => 'INTERIM',
copy_indexes => DBMS_REDEFINITION.cons_orig_params,
copy_triggers => TRUE,
copy_constraints => TRUE,
copy_privileges => TRUE,
ignore_errors => FALSE,
num_errors => redefinition_errors,
copy_statistics => FALSE);
