I had the same experiences in 7.3 release and I realized that this is due to
some interaction between vacuum, reindex and update on the same table. See
unfortunatelly I never was able to reproduce it.
When you are experiencing this show us the result of this query:
select cmax, cmin, xmax, xmin, * from <table> where <your condition>;
where <your condition> is a filter in order to obtain the rows wit the
primary key duplicated.
However I'm sure that you don't have two row with duplicated primary
key but two version of the same row, the result however is the same.
Are you reindexing your tables regulary ?
