VACUUM FULL is making your problem worse, not better.  Don't do that.

You need immediately to upgrade to the latest 8.1 stability and
security release, which is 8.1.11.  This is a drop-in replacement.
It's an urgent fix for your case.

You probably need to tune autovacuum not to do that table, and just
vacuum that table in a constant loop or something.  VACUUM should
_never_ "take the site down".  If it does, you're doing it wrong.

I think you will find that no replication system will solve your
underlying problems.  That said, I happen to work for a company that
will sell you a replication system to work with 8.1 if you really want
