When importing a table into SDE/Oracle 11g instance using AG 10 or 9.3.1 "Table to Table" tool, a field defined as Text, 4000 is converted to Text, 1073741822.  Using SQL Plus to describe the table, it defines it as Type, NCLOB.  The table was originally loaded in SDE using SQL.  There is a similar issue when importing the table into a File Geodatabase.

Has anyone encounter this problem.
