One possibility, to get the discussion going, is that you're using a non-standard language set.  Here's something from the archives:

This error is most probably related to your NLS_CHARACTERSET,
US7ASCI is single-byte, AL32UTF8 is multi-byte (up to 4 byte per character).

You can try with NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS=CHAR (default is BYTE),
this parameter applies only to newly created tables, so if you are trying to import data into existing tables, then recreate them first with parameter above and rerun your import.

Thanks for replying just to add NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS doesnt apply to sys or system isnt the repository part of this.

Upgrade to 10.2.0.4 to  fix it.
Alternativelly increase the column size to 54 and recompiled and it will work fine.
