it looks to me that you have experienced corruption, and some files may
be missing in the data directory.

you can check it yourself:
your data directory might be something like
/var/lib/postgresql/8.0/main/
this will contain a subdirectory base/
which will contain a directory for each of our databases
to get the directory name for database "dspace", do:
   select oid from pg_database where datname='dspace';
this database directory will contain several files. to
find the file(s) making upa particular table do:
   select relfilenode from pg_class 
                      where relname='item2bundle';

hope this helps you investigate this.
