Leslie -  thanks for your response.
The problem occured in fact on a NV 5.1.3 system (production) and I've got
a copy of it on NV 6.01 system (test)  -  the production NV DBs were copied
(but originally a 5.x  version, earlier versions have never been installed)
The actual status is stable, no more objects appearing

Sure it would be fine to do a restore/rediscover but ...
I recently inherited this NV installation and it is not really prepared to
do a more or less quick rediscovery (working on it) - it would be quite
painful, so that I think I will ignore it for a while ...

Helmut, I have not seen that happen in years. I keep an eye out for them
because long ago there were some code problems that could cause them.
But I don't see it any more. Have you been migrating the same database
since V4? If I saw that, even if they were not growing, I would schedule
for a rediscovery just to get it clean. If it is growing, call Support. If
weigh the pain and either ignore it or clean it up. Or call Support.

And I will say it again, you should always be prepared to rediscover or
restore your database. Stuff happens.  I would take a backup of this, and
restore from an old backup and check to see if they were always there. If
they were, you can just restore your most current one ( if you have the fix
for pax installed).

This is NV 6.01 in AIX 4.3.3:
Checking our object DB, I found about 9.000 objects with no
fields but Selection Name as follows:

OBJECT: 134765
        FIELD ID        FIELD NAME                      FIELD VALUE
        10              Selection Name                  "Selection

OBJECT: 134766
        FIELD ID        FIELD NAME                      FIELD VALUE
        10              Selection Name                  "Selection

I have no idea where they came from  - ovtopofix changes nothing.
 ...  I don't really want to restore from backup because they
seem to be there for quite a while.
Any ideas ? Thanks in advance ....
