I don't really see a problem here (unless you have some transaction state object leak bug). Recursive/autonomous transactions don't just stay lingering on once the recursive call completes.
When you exit a block with active autonomous transaction, it will roll back with error below:
2 procedure p is pragma autonomous_transaction; begin insert into t values(9); end;
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06519: active autonomous transaction detected and rolled back ORA-06512: at line 2 ORA-06512: at line 4

There's a flags column and also few additional columns decoded from flags in v$transaction, but not all types are covered... There's a "recursive" column there for example.
For better picture, a process state dump (search for "trans" state objects) may give more detail.
