Such locks (when someone is executing function and you are trying to
recompile it) are not displayed in v$lock.

I'd say that 'oradebug dump processstate 10'' is some kind of overkill
in such situation.
You can easily find locker (not only for your case but for every
locking situation) issuing either "oradebug hanganalyze 2" or just=20
"alter session set events 'immediate trace name hanganalyze level
2';". You will quickly get easily readable and small trace file with
tree(s) of blockers/waiters.
