Hash joins can also eat up a lot of temp space. When the problem job is running look at v$sort_usage to see what the temporary space is being used for. With a 1.5T database the fact may be that a 17G temporary tablespace is just no where near large enough to handle the requirements.

Is your current temporary tablespace large enough to rebuld the largest index in the database? Will you ever need to do this? Ask the same questions for the largest bitmap index?
