Just FYI, if you were reporting the DB size by the size of the compressed dump
file, then that's not exactly accurate. If your dump file is 2.2GB, I'd guess
your DB size is tremendously larger. Maybe it's more like 10GB. What does
the output of 'du -sh /var/lib/pgsql/data' show (you might have to substitute
/var/lib/pgsql/data for wherever your PGDATA directory is located)? That also
assumes you only have one database in your system. A better way is to install
the dbsize contrib module and use it to determine db size.

You should at least upgrade to 7.4.14. The version you are running has some
potentional data loss bugs in it.
For some reason I can't find this email thread in the archives, so if you've
answered this already, please forgive me.
What's the disk subsytem look like?
