Oh, right. Hmm.. xlogdump might be the cause.

Though I've not read the code of xlogdump, I wonder if it gives up
outputting the contents of WAL file when it finds a partial WAL page...
This strikes me that recovery code has the same problem. No?
IOW, when a partial WAL page is found during recovery, I'm afraid
that page would not be replayed though it contains valid data.
