I'll leave that part to you :-)  I don't know much about PostgreSQL

I suspect all the files with "No tables with that oid found" can be removed, 
but I don't know exactly how oid2name works, so I'll check them against 
pg_class before removing them.

> Also, did you get rid of the xlog temp file mentioned in the message?

It didn't exist anymore after the crash.

Thanks for the help!
Sander.
