There's something wrong with the table NOTACARGA. The
wrong message length error is unusual, and probably gfix
doesn't have code to handle the problem.

Can you do a SELECT COUNT (*) on the table? If so, I'd
suggest using a data pump to move the contents of the data
to an newly created database.

If not, write back with the error.
