This is heavy update.  as I say below, what is the vacuum setup like?

Where is your pg_autovacuum config?  how often is it set to vacuum? and 
analyze for that matter.

I would assume given heavy update you need more WAL buffers, but then I don't 
know a lot.

3 checkpoint_segments is too low for the number of inserts/delete/updates you 
are doing.  you need a much larger check_point, something like 10+  but the 
tuning docs will give you a better idea.
