without researching this ... my hunch is that the job coordinator takes up one process and its never able to hand the jobs off to slave processes.

the dbca specificed value for job_queue_processes in 10g is 10. I'd say alter it to at least 5 and monitor what (background) sessions are spawned as a result.
