It seems relevant that 9728 is a multiple of 512 (and not of any larger
power of 2). That makes it sound like the misfeasance happened at the
disk block level. Postgres doesn't internally deal in 512-byte chunks
anywhere I can think of, so to posit a DB bug you have to come up with
some other explanation why exactly that much of the block got trashed.
A filesystem-level software bug is not out of the question, though
this still smells to me like it's a hardware issue of some kind.
