The server seems to have written the wrong date for the first 45 minutes or so of Tuesday before switching in mid-stream:
<...>

No editing -- honest !

This is what the log dates look like:
ls -ltr  /var/log/pg_log9.0
total 8652
-rw------- 1 postgres postgres 1729857 Feb  1 23:59 postgresql-Wed.log

This is the end of Monday's log:
-bash-3.2$ tail /var/log/pg_log9.0/postgresql-Mon.log

And the start of Tuesday's:

The system log doesn't show anything hinky:
