May I add little to the above:
1. I reported this to oracle tech support group.
2. After half an hour, I got a reply that YES, It is a bug. Also, a way
to go around was also suggested as follows:
This happens where DESNAME (A parameter Destination file/printer name)
is used somewhere in text. (I was printing the DESNAME parameter on 1st
page of report.) Remove this parameter from the text and it works fine.
3. Thanx to all those who responded. (Especially, to Keith Majkut, who very
well guessed what the problem can be. The tar # : 105349.198)
