When you set the errorstack for "ORA-20000" in the following way and then execute dbms_utility:

SQL> alter session set events '20000 trace name errorstack level 3';

Then execute:
SQL> exec dbms_utility.compile_schema('TEST');

The trace file generated in user_dump_destination(udump) will show:

ksedmp: internal or fatal error
