ORA-16552 on switchover

I am getting this error when doing a switchover through oem grid control:

ORA-16552: error occurred while generating directives for client

I find this in the alert log:

Process (ospid 15269954) is suspended due to switchover to physical standby operation.

and sometimes:
ORA-16456: switchover to standby in progress or completed

which pointed me to a trace file that showed that the process running actually belonged to the agent.

Research on MOS indicated that there was a known bug relating to stored profiles. However, select * from dba_profiles returned 0 rows, so I dont think its related to that bug.

I can resolve the problem by manually shutting down and startup mount the instance, but I really need for this operation to work going through oem. Anyone have ideas?

Oracle, oem grid control 11g (though I dont think its a problem with grid control per se).
