I suspect this is the same problem as bug #4897, and probably also the
same problem as this:
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-bugs/2009-08/msg00114.php

and maybe also this and this:
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-bugs/2010-02/msg00179.php
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-admin/2009-05/msg00105.php

Unfortunately, it seems that no one has been able to get a stack trace yet.
