I've installed a fresh postgresql-7.1.2 on a Debian GNU/Linux, when
importing my first database from a dump I got this error:

ERROR:  ExecAppend: Fail to add null value in not null attribute
FATAL 2:  ZeroFill(/data/postgres/pg_xlog/xlogtemp.1223) failed: No such
file or directory

and now the database cannot be started again. I have no idea where to
start looking...
