In what version of the database, which level of 10046 and for which command?

I get the following in 10G for a simple create table statement with 10046 level 12. It shows lots of recursive sqls.

Subject: anyway to trace a DDL statement?

If I run a 10046 trace on a DDL statement, I do not get the recursive SQL that oracle runs underneath the DDL. Is there another form of trace that will show me what oracle is doing?
