One thing that I blamed first, before debunking it, is that after
promotion we do:
* Preallocate additional log files, if wanted.
where EndOfLog points to the last replayed record, rather than last
record(s). I think that's currently harmless, but it's certainly
fragile. Given the uselessness of PreallocXlogFiles() calls, I'm
inclined to just remove it here...
