select * from sysobject crashes

when i do the first query from below, i get
Msg 0, Level 11, State 0, Line 0
A severe error occurred on the current command.  The results, if any, should be discarded.
Msg 0, Level 20, State 0, Line 0
A severe error occurred on the current command.  The results, if any, should be discarded.

the second & third one are fine.. why would the select be a problem? i was watching it in profiler, but could not find what is offending..
exec sp_msforeachdb 'use [?] if exists (select 1 from [?]..sysobjects where name = ''licuser'')  select count(*) from licuser'
exec sp_msforeachdb 'use [?] if exists (select 1 from [?]..sysobjects where name = ''PMTellStat'')  select count(*) from PMTellStat'

exec sp_msforeachdb 'use [?] if exists (select 1 from [?]..sysobjects where name = ''abcd123THISDOESNOTEXIST'')  select count(*) from abcd123THISDOESNOTEXIST'

i found the database it is failing..

select * from licuser gives the above errors, too.. so it is not sysobjects.. i went to ssms adn drilled through the table.. i am getting the error on 'statistics'..

what corrupts a statistic? any way to fix this? can we check how many more tables are like this?

CHECKDB found 0 allocation errors and 0 consistency errors in database

If it is corrupt statistics, the only way to fix it that I know of is to rebuild the indexes.  As far as I know, there is no way to detect corrupt statistics.  Other than when you receive the error.

As per jestersgrinds comment rebuild all of the tables indexes using

ALTER INDEX ALL ON [TableName] REBUILD

No i dont believe so. Otherwise if you have large databases it could take a very long time to upgrade...

i had a ticket with MS for something else.. and this was explained to me this way:
SP1 - because it implements many system views/tables as part of its installation, it goes through and validates/refreshes all the statistics, because all the objects have to have reference to the new implementations of SP1...

in terms of checking in the future for statistic corruption, would you think the following idea is efficient:
sp_msforeachtable 'select top 1 * from ?'
if there is any problem with the table statistics, it will err out?

If I should have this issue later anytime, i guess the index rebuild will help out big time.. i could just run it on the offending tables? would you say so?

Hmmm, thats interesting...

You are better off just rebuilding the table in future as that will rebuild the stats too.
