that's where it finished, nothing else was logged between the "redo

I bet you've bumped into a bug in gist redo code, the cleanup phase
shouldn't take long. It's just for completing any incomplete splits by
inserting pointers to upper-level pages, and there shouldn't be more
than a few of those active at any point in time.
It looks like there's been quite a few changes to gistlog.c that haven't
been back-patched. This one in particular might be relevant here:

Fix thinko in gistRedoPageUpdateRecord: if XLR_BKP_BLOCK_1 is set, we
don't have anything to do to the page, but we still have to adjust the
incomplete_inserts list that we're maintaining in memory.
Teodor, what do you think?
