I created a 10GB partition for pg_xlog and ran out of disk space today
during a long running update.  My checkpoint_segments is set to 12, but
there are 622 files in pg_xlog.  What size should the pg_xlog partition

Postmaster is currently not starting up (critical for my organization)
and reports "FATAL: The database system is starting up" .

The log reports:
2006-12-22 10:50:09 LOG:  checkpoint record is at 2E/87A323C8
2006-12-22 10:50:09 LOG:  redo record is at 2E/8729A6E8; undo record is
at 0/0; shutdown FALSE

automatic recovery in progress
2006-12-22 10:50:09 LOG:  redo starts at 2E/8729A6E8

This has been running for 20 minutes.  What can I do?  Please help!
