Yeah, I'm also anxious about the stuck. I wrote a fix to use a copy of
pendingOpsTable as you said, when I implemented Load distributed checkpoint
patch. (http://momjian.us/mhonarc/patches/msg00025.html) It would make me
very happy if you review my patch and check whether my fix is proper.

There was another reason to fix it in my patch. I wanted to fsync files
only once for each file because bgwriter sleeps for each file in my patch.
