We didn't change the kernel or the hardware. We did upgrade the virtual 
host on which psf runs, including the postgres installation. I suspect 
we need only shut it down, run a fsck on the filesystem to make sure 
that is in good shape. Let me know when would be a good time. I suppose 
any time and as soon as possible?

Unfortunately I am not an expert in postgresql on THAT low a level, so I 
would also recommend a restore from backup.
