A report from pgCon 2013
Of course, whether a journal abort and *more* filesystem corruption is actually the right way to indicate a bug of this nature is another matter :)

If that is the case, it is impressive that the bug remained hidden for so long. Either the ones saying it was very hard to hit were right, or it did not cause any real problems beyond breaking the journal checksum (which then cascaded into the full corruption).
