Hmm, what this says is that the backend is blocked trying to send an
error or notice message to the client.  We can't tell anything about
what the message was, but that's not so relevant ... the focus now
has to shift to the network or client side, ie, why in the world is
the backend waiting on the client to accept a message?

Can you get a similar backtrace from the vacuumdb process?  (Obviously,
give gdb the vacuumdb executable not the postgres one.)
