Is log_checkpoint_interval set to a non-zero value? You don't say if it is or if it isn't. And the problem may not be with that parameter but with the size of the redo log groups (they are likely too small and, because of that, you're cycling through the groups at a relatively 'blazing' rate). I would seriously look into increasing the size of those redo logs and aim for two to three log switches per hour.
