Symptoms

 After Oracle Database Resource Manager (DBRM) configuration, dropping users are taking extremely long time to complete.

User being dropped was holding a 'X' mode 'Library Cache Lock' on the resource consumer group object, which was blocking all other users who want
'S' mode lock on this object. Several 100 sessions were queued up resulting in a hang like situation on a critical production database.
