When I check Use OCI/Thick driver the application will crash when I navigate to the tree and open a database.
Confirm that you installed the Instant Client Package - Basic and also the Instant Client Package -SQL*Plus. and that ALL Oracle client software is for x64 linux.
Have you tested connectivity using SQL*Plus? Test both SYS as SYSDBA and common users, e.g. SCOTT.
I also see a similar JVM crash using Windows 7/22.214.171.124 Instant Client/SQL Developer 64-bit with Use OCI/Thick driver checked. No doubt this will be an active area of investigation for development. Until a fix becomes available, either avoid OCI, go with a 32-bit environment, or revert to 3.1.

I also had the problem of SQL Developer crashing when using OCI/Thick driver but I've managed to solve it. My configuration is:
- Windows 64-bit
- Java 64-bit (126.96.36.199)
- SQL Developer 3.2.09 64-bit
- OCI Instant client 188.8.131.52 64-bit (without installation).
The thing that solved the problem was copying two files, ojdbc5.jar and ojdbc6.jar, from Instant client installation folder to JAVA_HOME/lib/ext folder+.
After that, I haven't had a single crash or error message.
The same trick that solved the problem on 64-bit installation also solved the problem on another windows computer with 32-bit SQL Developer installation.
