New submission from Izak Burger <izak at upfrontsystems.co.za>:

Hi all,

I noticed this morning that our backups wasn't running properly. It
looked like postgresql had some sort of locking that stopped the
database from being dumped. After being unable to stop postgresql, I
started worrying about the state of the file system, and since it
hasn't been checked in just over 300 days, I decided it would be best
to take it down and check it.

The good news is that there appears to be nothing wrong with the file
system. Backups are back on track. And while I was at it, I also
upgraded the kernel on the host machine. Everything is up and running
