Since Debian is having some problems with its alpha development machine, 
the Gentoo/Alpha port is happy to offer some help with this problem.

We can provide with shell account access (or even a chroot) in our 
development machine (AlphaServer ES40) for debugging this PostgreSQL 
bug. If it only happens on Debian, I could create a debian chroot for 

Gentoo/Alpha Team can be reached by mail: alpha(at)gentoo(dot)org or by IRC in 
Freenode #gentoo-alpha.

Thanks and feel free to ask if you need something more.
