Update I was unable to reproduce this issue in 10.2.0.4. Ironically, even though the bug is for RANGE predicates, the query in question is using an EQUALITY predicate. So I have to assume we are hitting some bug that is giving us an ultra low selectivity (incorrectly) under specific situations in 10.2.0.3, but no longer in 10.2.0.4.
