I am trying to describe a table. It just hangs. So I ran a 10046 trace and I get back is library cache locks.

on a describe? I get the same lock when I try to query it. It just blocks on it.

anyone ever see this before? This is from sqlplus. I run

desc mytable

it hangs and trace says library cache lock.
