I suggest you look at fixing your Oracle support access.

Oracle support note 146580.1 ORA-600 [733] "memory request size is too big for this port (o/s)" lists about 10 bug reports related to this error. The note suggests reducing the sort_area_size and hash_area_size and re-running the query. It is not 100% clear in the note but this solution may only apply if a hash_join is being used in the plan.

This note may not apply to your issue.
