Crank log_min_messages down to debug2 and check the log for DEBUG
messages talking about databases and tables processed by autovacuum.
(I think debug1 produces enough data, I can't recall precisely).

8.1 was the first release to sport integrated autovacuum.  It was very
rough around the edges.  If you're depending on its behavior, I suggest
you upgrade.
