Domain index marked unusable when running GATHER_TABLE_STATS

I've recently discovered that I am unable to insert rows that contain a XMLTYPE column with a XMLIndex when I'm running the DBMS_STATS.GATHER_TABLE_STATS procedure:
BEGIN
    DBMS_STATS.GATHER_TABLE_STATS ( OWNNAME => '"MY_NAME"', TABNAME => '"MY_TABLE"', estimate_percent => 35 );
END;
It will fail with the following error msg:
ORA-29861: domain index is marked LOADING/FAILED/UNUSABLE
Does this mean that gathering stats on the XMLIndex will always make the index unusable during the stats gathering procedure and thus, no inserts can be done on the table during this time? (XMLIndex is the only domain index on my table)
