Hmm.  Unless you have reason to think that your hardware is flaky,
I dislike writing this off as "just a glitch".  I think most likely
you got bit by a bug somewhere.  Still, if we can't reproduce it
it's gonna be mighty hard to find.

If you have the time and interest, it might be worth repeating the
whole setup sequence starting from initdb.  I'm speculating that
installing PostGIS might have somehow left corruption in server memory
that later manifested as the visible problem.
