7.4 has downgraded those messages to NOTICEs, and says

                    /*
                     * This should not happen, since we hold exclusive
                     * lock on the relation; shouldn't we raise an error?
                     * (Actually, it can happen in system catalogs, since
                     * we tend to release write lock before commit there.)
                     */

If you saw it on anything besides a system catalog, then I'm interested,
but otherwise not to worry.

BTW, you really should update to 7.3.4.
