After a quick chat with Bruce it was determined that we don't freeze
anything (it would be horrid for downtime if we did so in pg_migrator;
and it would be useless if ran anywhere else). What we do is migrate
pg_clog from the old cluster to the new. So never mind that hypothesis.
Bruce noticed that the pg_dump/pg_migrator combo is failing to restore
pg_largeobject's relfrozenxid. We're not sure how this is causing the
errors Jamie is seeing, because what I think should happen is that scans
of the table should fail with failures to open pg_clog files
such-and-such, but not missing tuples ...
