Streams capture aborts with error ORA-1280. Examining the alert.log file prior to the Capture process failing shows that the Logminer Builder process immediately prior to the above encountered ora-1422.

In the trace file of the Builder process, we see  :

ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 1
ORA-01422: exact fetch returns more than requested number of rows
KSV 1422 error in slave process

In order to determine the sql being executed at the time of the error / to gain a better understanding of the issue , enable an errorstack to be generated at the point of the ora-1422 error (errorstack , level 3). This will give more information in the latest Builder trace file created. This can be done using :

conn / as sysdba
alter system set events '1422 trace name errorstack level 3' ;
-- start the Capture process and reproduce the issue .
conn / as sysdba
alter system set events '1422 trace name errorstack off' ;

This may likely show that the following sql is being executed is :

select ckpt_info from system.logmnr_restart_ckpt$ where session# = :1 and ckpt_scn = :2 and xidusn = :3 and xidslt = :4 and xidsqn = :5 for update
