Problem description:
Some SQL statements are failing with internal errors.

The alert log shows the errors are occurring intermittently.

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kkslpbp:1], [], [], [], [], [], [], []

Other Symptoms:
- The trace file may show:  No current SQL statement being executed.
In this particular case, the errors were coming from a PL/SQL procedure that executed the statements.

- A search of the trace file for 'Current Cursor:' will show that there is a SQL statement in the
current cursor.  This particular case showed the SQL statement using the WITH clause, but this issue has been reported in cases where a WITH clause was not being used.

-The alert log will show that the database was started with cursor_sharing = SIMILAR or FORCE, or the PL/SQL procedure will show that cursor_sharing is being set within the procedure.

The function stack may look like the following:.

ksedst ksedmp ksfdmp kgerinv kgeasnmierr
$cold_kkslpbp kkspsc0 kksParseCursor opiosq0 opiall0 opikpr . .
