Ah, if I remember correctly, the 6.3->6.4 upgrade required dumping the old db
with the _new_ pg_dumpall, otherwise it'd throw and error while reloading.
What usually happens to me when I do something like that is the error flys by,
then the rest of the file gets taken as a really long, badly formed query.

I assume your doing something like:

psql template1 <dump_all_6.3.sql

try something like (this is for a bash shell: season to taste for csh)

psql -e template1 <dump_all_6.3.sql | less 2>&1

then in the pager, search for ERROR
