hmm - I don't suppose the RHEL builds already include your patch against this issue? If so I guess it would be useful to know :)
I've run through the steps you outlined to reproduce the fault on a new box (after having reproduced it successfully on test servers), and it does not show the problem:
[root(at)XXXXXXX data]# !psql
psql test -U XXXXX

I believe they aren't, but you could check by seeing what pg_config
reports as the configure options; or even more directly by seeing if
it will let you "SET debug_assertions TO on".
