When selecting sections by attribute nothing is displayed graphically even though the selected sections are evident within the background table. Similarly, when selecting sections manually, only a relatively few (100 - 150) can be viewed graphically. If more sections are added the graphics "reset" and nothing is displayed.
The problem is with the tables Arcmap/ArcSDE uses to hold selected features. These are called SDE_LOGFILES and SDE_LOGFILE_DATA. First thing to do is drop them. Log in to sqlplus under your username and run:
drop table sde_logfiles;
drop table sde_logfile_data;
They will get recreated the next time you log back into SDE/SM. For preventing this happening in the future, take a look at this ESRI article: http://support.esri.com/en/knowledgebase/techarticles/detail/37841
