It's quite improbable that the latter has anything directly to do with
the former.  However, the latter does seems to suggest a version
mismatch problem --- specifically, a 7.1 plpgsql.so and an older
postgres backend.  So I will suggest that your real problem is you have
not updated all components of your PG installation to 7.1.
Try "rpm -qa | grep postgres" and see if anything's out of sync.
