Symptoms

Running a query that uses bind variable, fails with ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [17114], [0x056CAB738] .

Call stack: kghrcdepth <- kghfrempty_ex <- qesmmIPgaFreeCb <- ksudlc <- kssdel

The query fails intermittently, and on some occasions even if no error is returned in the command prompt, the alert log reports errors like:

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kghfrf:nxt], [0x021B7BAF8], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], []

 Issue reproduces on a database with AL32UTF8 and not on a database with UTF8 characterset. Error occurs even if the lines are returned. Issue spotted in 11.2.0.2 , but reproduces also in 11.2.0.4.
