O.k. further on this.. the crashing is happening quickly now but not
predictably. (as in sometimes a week sometimes 2 days). I just now got
them to send some further logs... Interestingly:

2006-09-28 16:38:37.406  LOG:  could not send data to client: An
operation on a socket could not be performed because the system lacked
sufficient buffer space or because a queue was full.

That log entry is the last (of consequence) entry before the machine says:

2006-09-28 16:40:36.921  LOG:  received fast shutdown request
2006-09-28 16:40:36.921  LOG:  aborting any active transactions
2006-09-28 16:40:36.921  FATAL:  terminating connection due to
administrator command

On the ERROR side of things I have a bunch of standard, unique key
violations etc... AND:

postgresql-2006-09-27_000000.log:2006-09-27 23:49:57.671  FATAL:  could
not read from statistics collector pipe: No error

I have requested a clean run with entire log at DEBUG2. Hopefully that
will give us more info.
