Are you sure that was an issue with PostgreSQL?

I have certainly observed that issue with Oracle, but NOT with

I have commonly done data loads where they loaded 50K rows at a time,
the reason for COMMITting at that point being "programming paranoia"
at the possibility that some data might fail to load and need to be
retried, and I'd rather have less fail...

It would seem more likely that the issue would be on the Java side; it
might well be that the data being loaded might bloat JVM memory usage,
and that the actions taken at COMMIT time might keep the size of the
Java-side memory footprint down.
