Yes, I got it backwards in my first post, sorry about that. I'm almost sure no one executed that "alter table..." statement - I'm the only one who could have done it :-) This is a table from APEX in a locally managed tablespace with automatic extent allocation and ASSM... there are lots of inserts on the table, but almost no deletes or updates...
