There is no bug here. Some transaction is stuck waiting for something
else, or else you've left a transaction hanging around that way (is
your JDBC driver old? It used to issue BEGIN right after COMMIT when
in non-autocommit mode. That'd cause this issue).

You need to figure out what's blocking what. Look in the pg_locks
system view. See the manual for more on this.

I don't believe this is the problem you're having there. If what
you're saying is the case, you need to look for breakage elsewhere.
