Probably it is related.
There is no telling are a thing with the bad method of a lock and 
whether it is bad that the number of LRU buffers is simply small.

By PostgreSQL8.2, NUM_SUBTRANS_BUFFERS was changed into 128
and recompile and measured again.
NOT occurrence of CSStorm. The value of WIPS was about 400.
(but the value of WIPS fell about to 320 at intervals of 4 to 6 minutes.)

If the number of SLRU buffers is too low,
also in PostgreSQL8.1.4, if the number of buffers is increased
I think that the same result is brought.
(Although the buffer of CLOG or a multi-transaction also increases,
I think that effect is small)  

Now, NUM_SLRU_BUFFERS is changed into 128 in PostgreSQL8.1.4
and is under measurement.
