Oracle8i on Linux, strange JDBC problem!

Hello all,
Iam running oracle8i 8.1.7 on Redhat v8. The default shell for my ORACLE user account is bash and has to be changed to korn shell. Oracle jdbc access doesn't work anymore from korn shell. I tried running a simple application from the linux box to query the database and it comes up with o3Logon security exception. When i change back to bash everything is fine! Any ideas folks??

Sounds like some startup script that only runs when you use the Bash shell.
Save the output of the 'env' command for each shell; diff the files and trace it from there.

Normal is in the eye of the beholder
I agree. Here's the link:
