Symptoms

Attempting to execute an external procedure with default or listener configuration hangs when wallet is configured in database sqlnet.ora file (SQLNET.WALLET_OVERRIDE = TRUE)
This can be reproduced with the sample demo program provided in $ORACLE_HOME/plsql/demo/ and using the $ORACLE_HOME/hs/admin/extproc.ora configuration.

If the extproc process is killed it will report:

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-28579: network error during callback from external procedure agent
ORA-06512: at "SCOTT.DEMOPACK", line 5
ORA-06512: at "SCOTT.DEMOPACK", line 103
ORA-06512: at line 1

Running "pstack" on the hanging extproc process will show below call stack.
