Hmmm ... it seems just possible that this is related to a recent fix:
2005-11-02 19:23 tgl
* src/backend/access/transam/slru.c (REL8_0_STABLE): Fix
longstanding race condition in transaction log management: there
was a very narrow window in which SimpleLruReadPage or
SimpleLruWritePage could think that I/O was needed when it wasn't
(and indeed the buffer had already been assigned to another page).
This would result in an Assert failure if Asserts were enabled, and
probably in silent data corruption if not. Reported independently
by Jim Nasby and Robert Creager.
Would you update to 8.0.5 and let us know if you still see the failure?
regards, tom lane
