Well, that's just bizarre.  I found a problem in CVS HEAD that would
lead to a bogus selection of the default for wal_sync_method, but it
doesn't apply to 8.3.  I really don't see how 8.3 would fail to use
open_datasync as the default if it's an available value.  Did you
build 8.3.1 yourself, and if so how?
