OK, this is fixed now. The problem is that my new cache-use code finds
tuples by looking in the cache, getting the t_ctid value, and using
heap_fetch to get the tuple, rather than the older sequential
However, when you vacuum a table, as the rows are moved, the t_ctid
changes, but there was no call to invalidate the system cache for the
row, so when you vacuum pg_class, and later use the cache to look up
something, the cache points to an old tuple.
This is fixed now, along with a little cache code cleanup that removes
some unused code that was confusing things.
