Intermittently PROCESSED messages are not being removed from queue tables.

Attaching to the qmon processes via oradebug and generating an errorstack causes the PROCESSED messages to be removed. Stack trace generated matches that in <Note:580273.1>.

Additionally issuing

alter system set aq_tm_processes=0 scope=memory;


alter system set aq_tm_processes=1 scope=memory;

restarts the qmon worker process and temporarily works around the issue.

The problem is only observed on the HP-UX Itanium port.
