Nice bug in Oracle affecting function NUMTODSINTERVAL

Always check out the original article at http://www.oraclequirks.com for latest comments, fixes and updates.

select numtodsinterval(11505,'SECONDS') from dual;

This simple query killed my sqldeveloper session.
I mistakenly wrote SECONDS instead of SECOND and boom!

I ignore if the same happens with the plurals of the other units.

I wonder what kind of parameter checking is done in this function...
