Dead locks should be picked up immediately, here's an example.  You will require two SQL*Plus sessions...

-- Create test data...
CREATE TABLE t1 (id NUMBER);
CREATE TABLE t2 (id NUMBER);
INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(1);
INSERT INTO t1 VALUES(2);
INSERT INTO t2 VALUES(1);
INSERT INTO t2 VALUES(2);
COMMIT;

-- Now, in session one, run...
DELETE FROM t1 WHERE id = 1;

-- Now, in session two, run...
DELETE FROM t2 WHERE id = 1;
DELETE FROM t1 WHERE id = 1;

Now, in session one, run...
DELETE FROM t2 WHERE id = 1;

Session two will now have its last statement cancelled (the transaction is not rolled back): ORA-00060: deadlock detected while waiting for resource

DEADLOCK is a rare, serious error considered by Oracle.

so it's logged in the alert.log file.
