Oracle8i, Failsafe and patchset 12

To anybody using Oracle8i and failsafe,  

After implementing 8.1.7.4 patchset 12 on my Windows 2000 adv server failsafe configuration failsafe (and MS Cluster administrator) stopped being able to control the Oracle service (it can stop it but not start it again - saying things like "file not found"!). All the due diligence exercises have been done and I am convinced the patching was no flawed on my part. I suspect a bug in the patch set and Oracle support are indicating that others may be having the same problem. My database runs fine but has had to be removed from failsafe.  

So two things:  

1 - if you are using failsafe and Oracle8i think very carefully before applying patch set 12
2 - if you have applied patch set 12 either successfully or unsuccessfully with failsafe I'd love to hear from you so I can either put pressure on Oracle for a fix or share some thoughts on what is going on.  

Many thanks  

T
