On thinking about it, I'm having a hard time seeing how that case could
arise, unless the source database was old enough to have wrapped around
its OID counter.  I'd be interested to see the details of your case.
While the only long-term solution is proper dependency tracking in
pg_dump, there might be some shorter-term hack that we should apply...
