[ a bit OT, but maybe it can prevent others from doing the same mistake: ]

sometimes (only sometimes) some things on debian go wrong, too.

i updated a few systems from 6.5.x to 7.0.3 and after the third time, i
thought everything goes fine automatically (dpkg is warning and says not to
do that way... it's not the default, of course).

so i tried to switch back to 6.5.x and forward again -- that was the real
mistake: i overwrote /var/lib/postgres/data.old/ twice that way.

so, if you forgot to make a pg_dump manually and something goes wrong, take
a look at data.old.
