Error in the some st_geometry functions (ORA-28579)

I have problem when I try to use some st_geometry functions.


One of them is the st_buffer()


In the resource center there are a example for use it (st_buffer):


But, look that happened when I try to run the query using sqlplus: 


SQL> SELECT "Sensitive Areas", "Hazardous Sites"

  2  FROM sensitive_areas sa, hazardous_sites hs

  3  WHERE sde.st_overlaps (, sde.st_buffer (hs.location, 0.01)) = 1;

SELECT "Sensitive Areas", "Hazardous Sites"


ERROR at line 1:

ORA-28579: network error during callback from external procedure agent

ORA-06512: at "SDE.ST_GEOMETRY_SHAPELIB_PKG", line 325

ORA-06512: at "SDE.ST_GEOMETRY_OPERATORS", line 1213

The curious is that others functions like st_relate works fine!


Anyone can help me?
