When trying to drop a change table an ORA-00942 is reported as follows


BúaD w linii 1:
ORA-00942: tabela lub perspektywa nie istnieje
ORA-06512: przy "SYS.DBMS_CDC_PUBLISH", linia 810
ORA-06512: przy linia 1

With Streams tracing enabled and an errorstack on 942 set as follows

 results in the following being reported 

Streams : knlcfdrl 
   error 942 while looking up the Streams tables. 

with the following stack 
kkzugekdl_int <- kkzugekdl <- kntsSetTrigger <- knlcfdrl 

The problem is caused by private synonyms which have the same names as the CDC change tables in the staging database.
