Ok, so George Wilson clarified things a bit more for me on this one.
The real fix for this is 6447701, which is in u4, the patch will release 
approx mid September ( post official u4 release ).

The patchid's to fiox above will be:
120011-14 ( or higher )  SPARC
120012-14  ( or higher )  X86

These are the u4 KU's and require a lot of patches ( SPARC has 18 
requirements, x86 about the same )

Sorry for any confusion.
