Symptoms

After patch 17473652 is applied issue occurs after querying multiple records in a multi-record block when descriptive flexfield data has been previously entered for some but not all of the records queried. Issue happens for a descriptive flexfield segment defined with no attached value set, When a value exists in this segment for one of the queried records, all records without a DFF value queried that display after this record display up to 25 characters of the value from this previously populated record in that segment.

This issue occurs when a DFF segment is defined without a value set. After associating a value set to the segment (i.e. 2240 characters none validated), the issue no longer happens.
