Using partition extended syntax reduces the locks and metadata required, so the issue seems to point in that direction, not extent allocation, etc. If it were the latter, it would reproduce in both cases.

There should be some dictionary query on a $ table (like SEG$, TSQ$, etc) that shows up, I would think, in the ASH/AWR report. Finding that SQL might make it more apparent what the issue may be.
