Well, basically I want to know how to create a database from which
pg_dump can't dump indexes ... can you reconstruct the sequence that got
you into this condition?

Also ... this is really grasping at straws, but do you have SELinux set
in enforcement mode in your RHEL4 system, and if so does changing it to
permissive mode make a difference?  We've seen a bunch of issues with
SELinux :-( --- this does not seem like any of them, but you never know.

If "pg_restore -l" shows a lot of stuff but not the indexes (either as
indexes or as constraints) then I'd say that's sufficient evidence.
