I've reproduced the problem, this time in block 74 of relation
base/16384/4931589, and a tarball of the data directory is here:

(the table is in database jjanes under role jjanes, the binary is commit

What I would probably really want is the data as it existed after the crash
but before recovery started, but since the postmaster immediately starts
recovery after the crash, I don't know of a good way to capture this.

I guess one thing to do would be to extract from the WAL the most recent
FPW for block 74 of relation base/16384/4931589  (assuming it hasn't been
recycled already) and see if it matches what is actually in that block of
that data file, but I don't currently know how to do that.
