The company that I work for is very paranoid about sharing specific
information about what we do with the outside world.  Therefore, I have
changed the table and column names to protect the innocent.

The table definition that session B is using is:

    Column    |         Type          |     Modifiers
--------------+-----------------------+--------------------
 col1         | character varying(64) | not null
 col2         | integer               | not null
 col3         | character varying(64) |
 col4         | bigint                | not null default 0
 col5         | integer               | not null default 0
 col6         | integer               | not null
 col7         | bytea                 |
 col8         | date                  |
 col9         | integer               | not null default 0
 col10        | bigint                | not null default 0
 col11        | bytea                 |
Indexes:
    "foo_pkey" PRIMARY KEY, btree (col1)
    "foo_col9ix" btree (col9)
    "foo_col10ix" btree (col10)
    "foo_col5ix" btree (col5)

Session B loops on the following SQL statements with a one minute delay
between each loop:

BEGIN;
SELECT col1,col2,col3,col4,col5,col6,col8,col9 FROM foo WHERE col5 = $1 AND
col8 >= '20070716' LIMIT 100;
-- The following is repeated as many times as there are rows from the above
select that need to be updated
UPDATE foo SET col4 = $1, col5 = $2 WHERE col1 = $3 AND col8 = $4;
COMMIT;

The following is a snippet from the postgres log showing the loop session B
was in as we were trying to figure out how we got into this situation:

However, I was able to get the same results by following the steps I had
listed in the bug report.  Were you not able to duplicate this by following
those steps?

Thanks for you help.
