Short Description
Postmaster will not restart

Long Description
Afetr several very happy years of using PostgreSQL, I finally
have a serious problem.
As far as I know, the postmaster terminated correctly, but now 
when I restart it I have:

DEBUG:  database system was shut down at 2001-07-30 21:17:17 BST
DEBUG:  CheckPoint record at (0, 214140268)
DEBUG:  Redo record at (0, 214140268); Undo record at (0, 0); Shutdown TRUE
DEBUG:  NextTransactionId: 221440; NextOid: 617393
FATAL 2:  ZeroFill(/work/database/postgres/pg_xlog/xlogtemp.449)
failed: No such file or directory

Is there any way back from here?

Indeed, the xlogtemp file does not exist, and that directory contains:

-rw-------    1 postgres db       16777216 Jul 30 21:17 000000000000000C

My platform is PostgreSQL 7.1.2 on Linux x86 (2.4.7 kernel) with
glibc 2.2.3.
