comment How does wc -l `ls` give the actual number of lines?
I could have been more specific; but yes the shell will split the output from ls into tokens, based on IFS. etc. Regardless, as you say, using ls like this is weird at best, and dangerous at worst.

comment Why is connecting to Oracle Express 11 is very slow on Fedora 17?
People spend careers learning how to optimize databases, it is a hard topic. The first thing you could do is be more specific; how big is the DB, how many reads/writes per second? How many clients? etc. etc. Since you're using oracle you should be able to find a consultant easily enough if money is not a concern.
