When attempting to create a POLICY_FILTER with FILTER => 'CTXSYS.AUTO_FILTER' and then using the policy_filter on an RTF document, this fails with DRG-11207

SQL> declare
  l_clob clob;
  for x in
 (select DOC_rtf_BLOB from TEST_BLOB_TABLE)
   ctx_doc.policy_filter(policy_name => 'my_policy',
                         document => x.DOC_rtf_BLOB,
                         restab => l_clob,
                         plaintext => FALSE,
                         charset => 'US7ASCII');
      INSERT INTO TEST_CLOB_TABLE values ( l_clob ) ;
end loop;
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-20000: Oracle Text error:
DRG-11207: user filter command exited with status 1
ORA-06512: at "CTXSYS.DRUE", line 160
ORA-06512: at "CTXSYS.CTX_DOC", line 1011
ORA-06512: at line 7

Another symptom can be the ctxhx standalone execution failure:

> $ORACLE_HOME/ctx/bin/ctxhx test.doc test.html
> echo $?
