Read this from Oracle Support :
The customer is working on a Windows NT Server version 4.0
Service Pack 4. When they run their application they
are getting the error:
ORA-1041 "internal error. hostdef extension doesn't exist"
When you look at sqlnet traces of the error the Ora-1041 is
coming after the ora-3113. Therefore the Ora-1041 is the
result of the ora-3113 and that is the real cause of the problem.
What is happening is that the customer is getting an ora-3113
(for some unknown reason) and then when the odbc/oci tries to do
the next stmt it finds out the connection handle is gone resulting
in the ora-1041 error.
The sample problem may cause the following error:

has a range of 0 - 40 (Decimal).
Shutdown and restart your Windows NT computer.
UnusedFileCache trims unused cache based upon pool usage. The data
value you set is the percent of the pool that can be consummed by
unused segments before it is trimmed. The valid data values for

15 through 20 seems to be a nice balance and appears
to increase performance of some apps, including IIS.

If there are no errors in the alert.log or trace files in the user_dump_dest directory, then it would appear to be related either to a networking problem or perhaps something specific to the ODBC connection. You should check the networking logs for any information.
