Ran 7 hours on 741 with VACUUM ANALYZE every 5 minutes.  The largest CS I saw
was 40k, with an average of 500 (via script which monitors vmstat output).

I've done a VACUUM FULL ANALYZE on 803 and have switched the cron based VACUUM
ANALYZE to 803 also.  The tests are now running again.

I just glanced at it.  Once I've reproduced (or not) the problem on 803 with the
VACUUM FULL, I'll turn off the vacuum delay.
