Interesting.  Notice how it doesn't have the database name in the ps
display.  This means it must have crashed between the initial
init_ps_display and the set_ps_display call just before starting to
vacuum.  So the bug is probably in the startup code; probably the code
dealing with the PGPROC which is the newest and weirder stuff.
