Take a look at the source for autovacuum... I'm guessing you're right
and that it doesn't make any special considerations for toast tables,
which it probably should (since AFAIK you have to first vacuum the
base table, then commit, then vacuum the toast table).
BTW, tracking pg_class.relpages or actual file size over time would
probably be helpful.
