Wifred notes that Patch has a bug in Oracle forms

I notice with interest Wilfred van der Deijl's post to his blog titled "Patch misses MouseWheelHandler.class" as it seemed to imply from the title that yet again another patch set has a problem. Wilfred details the issue whereby a Jar file is missing from patch That was causing Forms to load 4 times slower than it was on the previous patch set. Oracle knew about the issue internally and had fixed it in Wilfred fixed the issue himself by adding the missing Jar back. This is a great analysis of a bug.
