Symptoms

Getting an ORA-12028 when creating a distributed, fast-refresh mview.

1. Both master and mview sites are stated as 10.2.0.4. 
2. This worked when compatibility = 10.2.0.1, but not when set to 10.2.0.3. 
3. It also worked when created as a complete-refresh mview.
4. The checks in <Document 1059547.1> "How to deal with ORA-12028 reported when creating a Fast Refreshable Remote Mview," were completed, but the issue remained.
5. A 10046 trace showed that the failing statement was dbms_utility.db_version.  This was successful when run locally, but failed when run via a dblink.
