I've "oracle" user under "oracle group". So I added the user to this =

I realise that I had these environment vars correctly set for the oracle =
user and not for other users. I've now added these to /etc/bashrc since =
I want almost all my users to have them set.
After these settings, the problem disappeared and all my users can now =
login without any errors.
Slow response remains a problem. I am now working on applying the advice =
I'm being given by Conor.
Thank you =C9ibhear for your this useful advice.
