Beats me. > Wouldn't more aggressive vacuuming of catalog tables fix the bloat? Not really in my experience, at least not without more drastic vacuum changes. The issue is that if you have a single "long running" transaction (in some workloads that can even just be a 3 min taking query/xact), nothing will be cleaned up during that time. If you have a few hundred temp tables created per sec, you'll be in trouble even then. Not to speak of the case where you have queries taking hours (say a backup).
