Compress File Geodatabase Crashes

I extract some data to a file geodatabase (v9.3) from a SDE Geodatabase (Oracle 11g / 10.1).  The extract works fine.  I compress the geodatabase using either ArcCatalog or Python.  Either option crashes the software.  In Python it crashes with "Exit code: -336589910" and crashes python.exe.  It doesn't matter that the compress tool is in a try block.  In ArcCatalog the background geoprocessor process crashes. 

Has anyone else seen this behavior.  I am running ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 SP1.  The process is built on a previous one that worked fine with desktop 10.0 / File Geodatabase 9.3 / SDE Geodatabase (Oracle 11g / 9.3.1).
