not sure - i'll see if I can schedule a memtest run.

I don't use PostgreSQL for anything other than Ledger SMB.  I haven't
noticed any data problems with my other applications though.  One thing
I haven't yet pointed out is that I was running SL and Ledger SMB 1.0.0
on Postgres 7.4.  I switched to Postgres 8.1 when I saw the upgrade
script expected 8.0 or higher.

Not that I'm aware of.  I did switch servers about a year ago and I
don't remember how I migrated my SQL Ledger database - it's possible
that's where the corruption was introduced.
