After reproducing these crashes and running tests long enough, we found
that these Postgres Crashes happen on linux 2.4.18 and not on linux
2.4.25. In all likelihood, this is a kernel (or driver) issue.

Could you kindly ensure this gets on my mail thread with subject "Postgres
Crashes".

Thanks
Prem.
