ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_STATS", line 17806

The stack trace is similar to the following:
The table has a function based index and the problem can be reproduced in 220.127.116.11 by a simple testcase:

2) Create functional index
4) exec dbms_stats.gather_table_stats(USER,'NAME',cascade=>TRUE);

Also, if the index is dropped, the problem does not occur.
