I really appreciate your effort Brain! Unfortunately you may find out issues like the one on ACSMail Lite you have kindly reported (my bad) that are due to our lack of an Oracle test framework. Therefore, modifications on my side that had to do with the Oracle codebase were conducted on a best-effort basis and will probably need some testing/rework.
Please keep up your reporting and I will do my best to give you insights and the help I am able to provide on this. It is very nice to see somebody willing to revamp the Oracle side of the project!
