Hello listers,


I am getting the following error when I attempt to CLUSTER on a table:


 mavmail=# cluster mailer_queue;

ERROR:  could not create relation "pg_temp_752992924": File exists


The 752992924 is the oid of one of the indexes of this table (not the
clustering index)


This apparently is the result of a previous cluster operation that had not
cleaned up properly.

Where can I find this file?  There are several tables that have this
problem.  Do I need to

Do a database REINDEX or some other type of system maintenance?


Again we are running 7.4.5.  8.2.5 scheduled for implementation later this
month or early March.
