Thanks for pointing this out.
Naturally one would assume that after restarting the database and even the machine the jobs still being there may still not be committed. :-P

The problem only exists in our test db instance (at the moment)

I fully expected you and Daniel to tell me that. (Given the fact that there are 7 patch sets we haven't even looked at it might even have some foundation.)

Let's for a moment assume we were running Oracle 10g2 with the newest patch and hit this. What would you propose except calling Oracle?

Best regards, and don't be sad that some people only patch a running system when they hit a problem that is solved by patching.
