Is /etc/oratab in the index file? In the scripts directory where the grammar files are stored, there is an index file that maps file to grammar. If a file is not mapped correctly in the index file, config_record_number() will return a -1. I think oratab is not listed by default.
OTOH, oratab is fairly easy to parse with "awk -F:".
