It IS indeed an intermediate state. The stats are collected object wise, but depending on the complexity of your statements it's possible that you are using a table with and a table without new statistics. This happens, if a hard parse occurs during stats gathering.

But if you are executing this staement frequently now, it won't be hard parsed again. You are using an execution plan based on old AND awry stats now! In this situation, you need one of the several methods to force a hard parse once. It it's newl parsed now, all is well again.
