We already hit that issue and fixed it early in the 8.3 cycle. It was
more of a problem than the checkpoint issue because it caused hard
lock-outs while the file switches occurred. It didn't show up unless you
looked at the very detailed transaction result data because on fast
systems we are file switching every few seconds.
Not seen any gains from varying the WAL file size since then...
