Now I constantly get
ORA-03113 end-of-file on communication channel

the result is the same, connection broken and thats all.

I looked into alert.log and there is no entry for this time (and around).

When I started it inside SQLPlus with sql_trace = true a tracefile is created with all statements and more in it without the last one, that produces the error.

This will be a problem.
1st: So Oracle is to be installed twice on server and clients, because there are applications running that need 2nd: If Oracle is installed second time and the error is up and away and I can't reproduce it my application will be delivered without any guarantee whether the problem is solved or not!

I had the problem months before. As fast as come it went away again without any change by myself. Now, short before the program is delivered the problem came back. The only thing I did is to run some statistics. If I set the database back to before (lot of work) it will be as slow as before, so this can not be the right way :(
