While trying to create a view on a table for which the select privilege is granted via a role the following error occurs:

This fails with SYSTEM user creating view on dba_free_space as well. (Explicitly Grant SELECT on view to SYSTEM to make it Work.)

connect / as sysdba 
create user A identified by A; 
create user B identified by B; 
grant connect,resource to A;
grant connect,resource,create any view to B; 

create role R; 
grant R to B;

connect A/A 
create table A (A number); 
grant select on A.A to R; 

connect B/B 
select * from A.A;
no rows selected   =========> Selecting from the table is possible with the privilege acquired via a role

create view V as select * from A.A;
create view V as select * from A.A
ERROR at line 1: ==========> Creating a view does not work with the privilege acquired via a role !!
ORA-1031: insufficient privileges
