Thanks for your answer.


Stoping/starting the server does not solve the problem.
It reappears quickly.

As a work around I still run my DB on Linux Red Hat with Postgres 8.1, but i
would like to move to the new Windows 2008 server.


How can I know when a fix will be released ?

This is a known problem. I think stoping/starting the server will fix
it.  We hope to find the cause soon.
