I've turned off using the plan baselines altogether. I am also running the following:

SQL> declare
  2 cursor spm is select sql_handle from dba_sql_plan_baselines;   3 stat number;
  4 begin
  5 for c in spm loop
  6 stat:=dbms_spm.drop_sql_plan_baseline(c.sql_handle,null);   7 end loop;
  8 commit;
  9 end;
 10 /

Hopefully, that will clean things up.
