Regarding your question why subquery partition pruning still occurs when it obviously should not (see the message at http://www.freelists.org/post/oracle-l/Partition-pruning ), I think this Metalink note is relevant: Note:802367.1 "Cost Of Subquery Pruned Partitioned Table Is The Same As Accessing All Partitions", or the same titled Bug 8418618. You didn't tell us Oracle version. Is it 10.2.0.4 or 10.2.0.3?
If I'm not mistaken, your query actually accesses all 7 partitions. So the correct plan should show
- --------------- Operation Pstart| Pstop
- --------------- ... PARTITION RANGE ALL 1 | 7

I don't quite follow you here. But take a look at that Metalink note.
