procedure compilable over db link?

we have come across the problem that the execution of a stored procedure by our scheduling tool (cronacle -> over db link) fails with the error message:

ORA-04068: existing state of packages has been discarded
ORA-04062:  of  has been changed
ORA-04062: timestamp of procedure "LARA.PRC_BERECHNE_ZINSFAKTOR" has
been changed
ORA-06512: at line 1
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SYS_SQL", line 1118
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SQL", line 316
ORA-06512: at "SYSJCS.DDL", line 493
ORA-06512: at line 2
JCS-00215: in statement RSOJ_EXECUTE_JOB

We could not find any process that could have changed the timestamp of this procedure. Therefore we are thinking about recompiling the procedure over the same db link that is used to execute the stored procedure. However, test have come to no positive results. The recompilation over db link gives the following error: alter procedure TEST_PRC_SIR389_at_keth_2_lara_keth compile


ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00922: missing or invalid option

If we encapsulate the procedure with a synonym, we get a different error that leads to the assumption that a synonym is no appropriate procedure wrapper with respect to compilation: alter procedure SYN_TEST_PRC_SIR389 compile *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-04043: object SYN_TEST_PRC_SIR389 does not exist

We could eliminate the uncertainty that the quality of the test procedure is causing the problem. a local installation of the procedure compiles without problems.

Is ORA-00922 only a misleading error message and procedures cannot be compiled over db links whatsoever or are we missing some important points?
