If you are getting odd abends on your Golden Gate replicats due to trail file corruption, make sure you visit your filesystem options for the filesystem where the manager process writes the trail files.
Long story short is that we were finding large swaths of Zeroes appearing in our trail files. Using logdump I could see the header of the trail file was OK, but somewhere down the line a valid record would be followed by straight up zeroes. Lots of them. I verified this using logdump and a hex editor.
