Of course, that also points to the problems in the organization. Movers and 
rebuilders should do their dirty work when the instance is in restricted 
session state, which will minimize the impact on anybody else. This is the
thing for scheduled downtime. I've never had this error because I've always
done things like moving objects when nobody else was logged into the database.
I sort of cheated and restarted the instance in the restricted session mode
to make really, really sure that nobody else is logged on. Such errors really
do point toward the problems in the IT processes.
