Symptoms

Using a stored procedure in USER1 to DELETE a TABLE partition owned by another user USER2 fails with the following error.

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
ORA-06512: at "USER1.DROP_PARTITION", line #
ORA-06512: at line 1

This works within the 11.2.0.1.0 Database but fails after upgrading to 11.2.0.2.
Issuing the ALTER ANY TABLE privilege is what is required for this to work within 11.2.0.1, but it doesn't make a difference within 11.2.0.2
The privileges granted to the USER1 schema is identical in both 11.2.0.1 and 11.2.0.2
