Symptoms

You try to perform a full or schema export using DataPump export (expdp) utility using a command like:

#> expdp expuser/passwd full=y directory=dpu dumpfile=full.dmp logfile=full.log

or:

#> expdp expuser/passwd schemas=scott directory=dpu dumpfile=full.dmp logfile=full.log

This breaks with errors:

Estimate in progress using BLOCKS method...
Processing object type DATABASE_EXPORT/SCHEMA/TABLE/TABLE_DATA
ORA-39125: Worker unexpected fatal error in KUPW$WORKER.GET_TABLE_DATA_OBJECTS

ORA-31642: the following SQL statement fails:
