Hello, i'm using a Postgres 9.0.1 database and got the following error from one of my sql statements(not sure which one):

ERROR:  unexpected data beyond EOF in block 98762 of relation pg_tblspc/2600082/PG_9.0_201008051/2600083/2732877
HINT:  This has been seen to occur with buggy kernels; consider updating your system.

Has anyone ever seen this before?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank You.

Have you pursued the "HINT:  This has been seen to occur with buggy kernels; consider updating your system." According to http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_24575375.html#a24893470, an upgrade of PostgreSQL indeed fixes the issue.

Yes, I have seen that question, but upgrading Postgres isn't really an option(when 9.1 has been out for a little while we'll go to that, but not right now). I'm hoping someone may have been able to track down what exactly might have caused this on their system.  Its only happened once, but it doesn't show up in any logs or really anything, which is very strange.

I made a mistake before, we're on postgres 9.0.4

I've caved and upgraded the server.  This still doesn't answer the issue, but it just may be there is no real solution to this besides "get the latest version".  Thank you for your help.
