- The expression LPAD(REVERSE(( )) used in a select statement generates a failure with ORA-3113 reported on the client interface.

- For this failure, the alert.log file contains the following ORA-7445 error:

ORA-7445: exception encountered: core dump [_intel_fast_memcpy.A()+10]

or occasionally:

ORA-7445: exception encountered: core dump [kgidmp()+613] [SIGSEGV]

- Review of the generated tracefiles reveals a call stack similar to:

 intel_fast_memcpy  evalpa evaopn2 evaopn2 kpofcr qerstRowP
qerstRowP kdstf0000101km kdsttgr qertbFetch qerstFetch qergiFetch qerstFetch

- The example below reproduces the error:
SQL> create table test (col number);
SQL> insert into test values (100);
SQL> select LPAD (REVERSE (col), 2) from test;
select LPAD (REVERSE (col), 2) from TEST
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-3113: end-of-file on communication channel
