There seem to be two possibilities: either the data was actually
inconsistent in the 7.4 database (in which case it would be good to
find out how it got that way), or the data is fine but the pg_dump
script tried to do the ALTER ADD CONSTRAINT too soon (in which case
it would be good to find out why pg_dump got confused about that).
In either case I'm hoping you still have the 7.4 installation available
for inspection ...
