All,
have a cluster that hit the wrap-around issue.
We are trying to run the backend vacuum as describe in the manual to  
clear up the problem.

I not sure how I should be interrupting the messages I'm receiving  
from the vacuum command.
Here is the approach I take so far (note pg 8.1.4 Linux 64bit)
from command line  run postgres dbname
at the backend prompt run vacuum
the console spits out the following repeated many times
2007-03-23 08:51:00 MDTWARNING:  database "preR14" must be vacuumed  
within 999134 transactions
2007-03-23 08:51:00 MDTHINT:  To avoid a database shutdown, execute a  
full-database VACUUM in "preR14".

There are a few databases in this cluster ( about 6)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
