After upgrading to the following errors are raised when trying to export with DataPump a schema with a single quote in the name:

ORA-39127: unexpected error from call to export_string :=SYS.DBMS_AW_EXP.SCHEMA_ INFO_EXP('BOURDEAUD'HUI',0,1,'',newblock)
ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_ASSERT", line 342
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_ASSERT", line 411
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_AW_EXP", line 796
ORA-06512: at line 1
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_METADATA", line 7564

This worked right on and prior versions.


Applied the patchset.
