I just got a db that had filled up the filesystem. The server is down right now so I can't check the version #. Anyways, one user using one tablespace, everyday their code, does drop table and then recreates the table. The datafiles were autoextend, the table was just a couple of meg and almost 100GB of recycle bin.
I moved the table to a new tablespace with 10Mb allocated.

Not an answer to your question, but the recycle bin is supposed to be cleaned automatically when Oracle needs space in that tablespace. I even think that Oracle will first clean out the recycle bin and only after that increase the datafile (if autoextend has been enabled). In that sense it is normal that no special attention is set to the recycle bin.

Are you sure that the errors you got where caused by the recycle bin?
