Have you tracked the "branch node splits" and "leaf node splits"
statistics from v$sesstat for the session(s) performing the inserts? 

If you have STATSPACK collecting information you should see an upward
trend for these stats towards the end of the week but it would be best
to target the inserting sessions to be more conclusive in testing your
hypothesis. A logoff trigger may be necessary if the sessions are
transient.

No, no triggers.  I believe the high I/O is due to index maintenance.
When I remove the indexes or run the load with direct path, the load
screams.  Thx!

Any triggers on the table that refer to data found in the current week's
partition? This is a classic cause of high I/O per insert.
