First drop all objects owned by the user and then drop the user. See whether there is any error while dropping the object.

SQL> spool '<filename>'
SQL> select 'drop '||object_type||' '||object_name||';' from user_objects;
SQL> spool off

To drop the objects
         edit the spool file and run using sqlplus

One symptom of this error is that the session will appear to hang for a
  period of time prior to this error being reported.

   Issuing this SQL as SYS (SYSDBA) may help show any problem
  objects in the dictionary:

   select do.obj#,
        po.obj# ,
        p_timestamp,
        po.stime ,
        decode(sign(po.stime-p_timestamp),0,'SAME','*DIFFER*') X
    from sys.obj$ do, sys.dependency$ d,  sys.obj$ po
   where P_OBJ#=po.obj#(+)
     and D_OBJ#=do.obj#
     and do.status=1 /*dependent is valid*/
     and po.status=1 /*parent is valid*/
     and po.stime!=p_timestamp /*parent timestamp not match*/
   order by 2,1
   ;


If this doesn't solve the problem please send the corresponding trace file.Normally the above select would return no rows. If any rows are   returned the listed dependent objects may need recompiling.

If this doesn't solve ur problem try restarting your database manually. Let me know if it throws any error.

Hi,
Can you try the following as well.

Set session_cached_cursors=0 in the init.ora.

Send teh trace file and alert log. From that we can identify which step we need to take if teh above things doesn't work

Regards,
