Why is the result cache always disabled in Oracle 11g

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I’m trying to enable the result cache in Oracle 11g. I have used Enterprise Manager to change the result_cache_max_size and result_cache_max_result values to ‘1M’ and ‘100’ respectively (maybe these aren’t optimal settings, but I’m just trying to get it to work!).

After I make these changes I use the following query to see if the changes have really been made:

select * from V$PARAMETER where LOWER("NAME") like '%result_cache%';

I can see that both have been set correctly. However, when I run queries with the result_cache hint, I can see from the Autotrace that the cache isn’t being used. If I then run the following query:

SELECT dbms_result_cache.status() FROM dual;

I can see that it’s status is ‘DISABLED’. Restarting the database just makes the result_cache_max_size parameter go back to 0 (disabled).

How can I enable the result cache?
