enq:MS - contention is seen during MV refresh, even though there is no MV log. The MV is doing complete refresh.

During refresh, application sessions experience enq: MS - contention when accessing the base objects of the materialized views, and this sometimes lasts long enough that it times out the session (from the application side).
