When querying a remote table via Oracle Gateways an ORA-600 [ksmcat: no current call heap] error may be encountered, possibly followed by ORA-600 [qksxaDumpXml:1]  error.  The call stack for the error will resemble the following:

... ksmcat kqlnrc kglgpr kgiina kgiinp peiinspbn kkxpispbn kgmexec evapls evaopnc rpiswu2 evaopn2 qerocnClose qerocCloseReal kxsffir kxsFreeWorkArea kxsFreeExecutionHeap kksParseCursor opiosq0 kpooprx kpoal8 opiodr ...

Additionally, when trying to insert a value into a table extracted from a remote table via Heterogenous Services, such as:

insert into scott.my_tables select TABLE_NAME TAB_NAME_S,
                                   COLUMN_NAME COL_NAME_S,
                                   upper('T_' || TABLE_NAME) TAB_NAME_B,
                                   upper(COLUMN_NAME) COL_NAME_B,
                              from ALL_TAB_COLUMNS@remotedb where rownum = 1;

this errors with:

ORA-02055: distributed update operation failed; rollback required
ORA-02047: cannot join the distributed transaction in progress

Inserting directly into the table works though, as does executing the remote database SELECT query.
