I managed to recover the data that was still readable. About 650
messageblock entries got lost. What makes me nervous a bit is that
postgres kept running despite (partially) being destroyed. It should
really have shutdown itself after the first problem was found. That
database is for mails, and I would understand to have lost some from the
time before the power loss, but I even lost entries from *after* the
crash. That means the error happened after the system was up again and
happily did it's work, but lost entries to a table. Could there be a
better way to check the db at crash recovery startup time?
If someone is interested, I have a full postgres log with every single
command done to the database.
