CBO doesn't look at table's real HWM when optimizing a query, it uses the
stats from the point in time when they were gathered. When stats (including
system stats), optimizer parameters (including *_area_sizes) and real values
in predicates stay constant, then the execution plan should stay the same
for a given query, unless you encounter some bugs...
