When creating a Streams capture rule implicitly using dbms_streams_adm.create_capture, and then modifying it with dbms_rule_adm.alter_rule to add a very long rule condition (about 7800 characters in length), the rule condition is nulled out. The procedure executes successfully and no error is reported, but the rule condition itself is erased. This can result in a ORA-1405 'fetched column value is NULL' when starting the capture process.
