This is only slightly related to the issue, but STATSPACK's SQL is a capture of V$SQL "as-is" when the snapshot took place. SPREPORT does NOT perform a Diff as it does with other stats (i.e. end_stat - begin_stat). The 111,388 executions is *cumulative* since that SQL was last loaded/parsed. This is apparent if you look at the STATSPACK source at $OH/rdbms/admin/spcpkg.sql.
You should look at Tim G's "sphistory.sql" to determine the periodic progression of execution and other stats for a given SQL.
