RMAN posts to V$SESSION_LONGOPS extensively, presumably (but not positively)
using the DBMS_APPLICATION_INFO packaged procedures as anybody can...
That's the only way the two can be linked. Still unsure about how posting
to V$SESSION_LONGOPS by RMAN can cause ORA-03113
on subsequent queries by
other sessions -- as Jared indicates, it sounds rather tenuous to associate
one to the other. It smacks of the logic that runs "Whatever changed
recently must be the cause ... somehow or other"...
