Hmm, that would be an unexpected side benefit, wouldn't it!  It could be
true, if vacuum depends on pg_operator entries.  That'd explain why the
rest of us couldn't duplicate Oleg's problem: I'll bet no one who tried
had tables containing the data types that had bogus entries.  (In fact,
I imagine you need to have some *indexes* on those data types before
you'd see such a problem in vacuum, no?)

It occurs to me that there ought to be a VACUUM ANALYZE somewhere in
the regression suite, probably at the end where it has a whole database
of weird stuff to chew on.
