About a month ago I posted about a database crash possibly caused by corrupt index..

Dec 30 17:41:57 db-1 postgres[28957]: [ID 748848 local0.crit] [34004622-1] 2009-12-30 17:41:57.825 CST    28957PANIC:  right sibling 2019 of block 2018 is not next child of 1937 in index "sl_log_2_idx1"

Has since happened again with a DIFFERENT index (interestingly also a slony related index)

Jan 29 15:17:42 db-1 postgres[29025]: [ID 748848 local0.crit] [4135622-1] 2010-01-29 15:17:42.915 CST    29025PANIC:  right sibling 183 of block 182 is not next child of 158 in index "sl_seqlog_idx"

I re-indexed the table.......and restarted the database and all appears well (shut down autovacuum and slony for a while first to get feet underneath and then restarted after a few hours with no apparent ill effects)

Coincidentally (or not) started getting disk errors about a minute AFTER the above error (db storage is on a fibre attached SAN)

Any thoughts on how I should proceed?
We are planning an upgrade to 8.4 in the short-term, but I can see no evidence of fixes since the 8.2 version that would relate to index corruption.  I have no real evidence of bad disks...iostat -E reports:

Any insight would be appreciated.
