You encounter the following intermittent ORA-7445 errors:

ORA-07445: exception encountered: core dump [ksxpmprp()+42] [SIGSEGV] [ADDR:0x14] [PC:0x3EB76C8][Address not mapped to object] []

The stack trace will show similar to the following:

ksxpmprp <- kclpbuf <- kclprepare <- kcllkopb <- kclgrlk <- kcbzib <- kcbgcur <- ktbgcur <- kdoiur <- kcoubk <- ktundo <- ktubko <- ktuabt <- ktcrab <- ktcsod <- kssdch <- ksuxds


The trace file would show that there are at least 2 session state objects pointing to the same
process state object.

While having opened the trace file, search for string "(session) sid" and will find
following sessions in this example:

    (session) sid: 5062 ser: 9244 trans: 0xb8bce8218, creator: 0xb80081c68
    (session) sid: 5047 ser: 49958 trans: 0xb8bce6508, creator: 0xb80081c68
    (session) sid: 5115 ser: 20390 trans: 0xb8bf99178, creator: 0xb80081c68

All these sessions have the same "creator" which points to the process state object.

With this example the creator: 0xb80081c68 points to identical process state object (proc=0xb8001cf90)
which is a clear confirmation for this bug:
