You have to write the page (to be sure there is space for it on disk)
not only zero it.
This design is kind of a holdover, though, from back when we had one
ever-growing clog file. Today I'd be inclined to think about managing
it more like pg_xlog, ie, have some background process pre-create a
whole segment file at a time.
