You need to rattle some cages a bit harder. There are multiple known
security and data-loss bugs in 8.4.0; the one you've hit here is minor
by comparison. It's frankly irresponsible, not to say bordering on
incompetent, to refuse to update to a more recent bug-fix release.

Well, if a dump and reload is acceptable, that should fix it too ---
assuming it is what I'm guessing it is.
