Hmm ... which PG version is this? I think 8.2 will start to complain
about this much earlier than older versions (~ 100M transactions by
default, instead of 1000M). Though you've probably got a problem
here in any case.

Most likely the problem transaction is sitting idle and hence has null
query_start. Try "ps auxww" or local equivalent and look for postgres
processes that are very old and are in "idle in transaction" state.
