Goal

System tablespace has grown after the Data Pump import execution and the most larger table is argument$:

OWNER           SEGMENT_NAME                   BYTES/1024/1024
--------------- ------------------------------ ---------------
...
SYS             I_ARGUMENT2                               7994
SYS             I_ARGUMENT1                              14189
SYS             ARGUMENT$                                17307


A 10046 trace file showed as the top SQL statement:

insert into argument$( obj#,procedure$,procedure#,overload#,position#, sequence#,level#,argument,type#,default#,in_out,
length,precision#,scale,radix,charsetid,charsetform,properties,type_owner,type_name,type_subname,type_linkname,pls_type)
values (:1,:2,:3,:4,:5,:6,:7,:8,:9,:10,:11,:12,:13,:14,:15,:16,:17,:18,:19,:20,:21,:22,:23)

Why does the System tablespace increase continously during the Data Pump Import execution?
