If memory servers me (and it might not in this case), vacuum in 7.3 had
issues with indexes. Reindexing or clustering your tables might have
helped. Both are blocking operations.
How to avoid it in the future is simple. Upgrade to a modern version of
Postgres and vacuum your database properly. People work on this thing
for a reason :-)
