SOA suite upgrade

I just upgraded my developer system (windows XP) to SOA suite upgrade MLR#5 running on OLite. Below are the special points from the release notes. I still need to test the stability and features of the new version.

Section 5.1.1, "Password Displays in Clear Text During Deinstallation"
Section 5.1.2, "Passwords Appear in Clear Text in /tmp Directory After Running IRCA.SH"

5.1.3 BPEL Process Instances Do Not Display in Oracle BPEL Control when Using Oracle Database Lite

“If you install Oracle BPEL Process Manager with the Basic Install option, Oracle Database Lite (Olite) is installed. If you then apply the patch to this installation, BPEL process instances under the Instances tab in Oracle BPEL Control do not display.
As a workaround, use the Advanced Install option, which enables you to install a database other than Olite.”
>>WTF? Was it never tested? Or they have stopped making the tool developer friendly.

5.5.11 Removing or Changing the Passwords of Default User Accounts
>>Finally clearly stated

5.7.3 Fault Policy Changes Do Not Require a Restart of Oracle BPEL Server
>> Nice

5.9.5 BPEL Test Suite OnMessage Event Does Not Support Synchronous Operations
When reading section "Asynchronous Event Emulation" of Chapter 20, "Testing BPEL Processes" of the Oracle BPEL Process Manager Developer's Guide, note that the onMessage event does not support synchronous (that is, two way) operations.
>> never knew this !!!
