I have a cronjob that does a vacuumdb -a -z every night.
When i came to work this morning i saw a lot of postgres processes hanging
on wait.

The last thing i see before it hangs is this:

NOTICE:  --Relation pg_toast_1216--
NOTICE:  Pages 0: Changed 0, reaped 0, Empty 0, New 0; Tup 0: Vac 0,

NOTICE:  Index pg_toast_1216_idx: Pages 1; Tuples 0. CPU 0.00s/0.00u sec.

is this a known problem?
Postgres is version 7.1.1.
