It's a bug, but we'll need a lot more info than that to fix it.
For example: what were the last few commands you issued before
the crash? Is there anything in the postmaster log file?
(6.5.* libpq has a bad habit of dropping backend error messages
if the channel is closed immediately after the message arrives.
So if the backend reports a FATAL error and quits, the above is
all you see. But the FATAL message ought to be logged in the
postmaster log file.) Is there a core dump file from the failed
backend? (It'd be in .../data/base/yourdatabasename/core) If
so, can you use gdb to get a backtrace from the core file?
