The release notes does not seems to say anything like that
can you tell me where u read ?

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.4/static/release-7-4-3.html


    E.3.1. Migration to version 7.4.3

A dump/restore is not required for those running 7.4.X.


However:

<>http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.4/static/release-7-4-2.html
does say that dump/initdb/reload is an option to fix 2 errors.
These two errors can also be fixed manually without dump / reload
which is described in same URL.

Since Chris is already using 7.4.2  he may have already fixed it
if the data were imported from  < 7.4.2 . If original database was
created using 7.4.2 dump/reload shud not be required for
upgrading to 7.4.5


It is a great timesaver to skip dump/initdb/reload especially
when GIGs' of data is involved. Not just in terms of time but also
minor manual tweaks that are required to be done to dump files
sometime.
