Tom,

Doh!!  I created that log file and let it get out of hand.

OK, it's truncated and now I've got plenty of space, but it's still
complaining that it can't find the xlogtemp.1405:

DEBUG:  database system was shut down at 2004-04-07 12:14:38 CDT
DEBUG:  CheckPoint record at (1, 516646732)
DEBUG:  Redo record at (1, 516646732); Undo record at (0, 0); Shutdown TRUE
DEBUG:  NextTransactionId: 28728439; NextOid: 9098648
FATAL 2:  ZeroFill(/var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_xlog/xlogtemp.1405) failed: No
such file or directory
/usr/bin/postmaster: Startup proc 1405 exited with status 512 - abort

Again, I know I didn't delete it, but regardless, I'm unsure where to go
from here.

Thanks for all your help.  I hope we're close to a fix.

Hm, what is that pg_log file?  It's not part of the normal Postgres
fileset.  Is it perhaps just the postmaster's stderr output?  If so,
you're in luck: truncate that as you see fit, and you'll have some
breathing room.
