Simple Tracing

A recent forums.oracle.com thread indicating possible errors in DUAL led me to create this post.

See this extract from a trace I created (Note : It is NOT the complete trace !) :

=====================

These are my notes :
1. Cursor#27 (being of 18 characters, indicated by "len") is the SQL statement "select * from dual"
2. There are 2 "FETCH" calls for this. The first returns 1 row but Oracle does another fetch as well.
3. The STAT line for this cursor indicate that it returned 1 row (indicated by "cnt") doing a "TABLE ACCESS FULL DUAL".
4. Finaly there is an End Transaction marker with a "XCTEND rlbk=0". Why is this so ? Because the *subsequent* SQL statement is a DDL. A DDL causes an Implicit Commit.

So, now we see
5. Cursor#20 is the SQL statement "create synonym my_t_a for test_append"
6. This causes multiple *recursive* calls. Of these, I paste only the first three ! ("dep=1" indicates that the next SQLs are recursive).
7. Before Cursor#20 can complete, it is the recursive calls, beginning with Cursor #12 that must execute.
8. Cursor #12 is "select dummy from dual where ora_dict_obj_type = 'SYNONYM' AND ora_dict_obj_owner = 'PUBLIC'" which means that Oracle is doing some validation.
9. The STAT lines for Cursor #12 indicate that Oracle does a FULL TABLE SCAN of DUAL. This actually returns 0 rows (indicated by "cnt=0"), as it should (you can validate it by running the same SQL).
10. The next recursive SQL is Cursor #25 which is obviously a lookup on OBJ$.
Here, I've also posted the Binds as well. So you can see that my DDL statement that attempted to create a synonym called "MY_T_A" is now being validated to see if "MY_T_A" exists in OBJ$ (as name = :2 where 2, being Bind#1 is "MY_T_A") {Note : owner#=:1 being '64' is the USER_ID for 'HEMANT').

What would you say about cursor#26 and it's binds ?

By the way, the entire Trace file for the the completion of that CREATE SYNONYM statement continues to 1,213 lines, with a number of other recursive SQLs thrown in. (The success of the CREATE is finally indicated to me by an "insert into obj$" statement, followed by another "XCTEND rblk=0").
