Hmm.  This time it passed that point but this happened:

COPY "certificate" FROM stdin;
NOTICE:  copy: line 253677, bt_insertonpg[certificate_pkey]: parent page 
unfound - fixing branch
ERROR:  copy: line 253677, bt_fixlevel[certificate_pkey]: invalid item 
order(1) (need to recreate index)
lost synchronization with server, resetting connection

It then continued on.  It is currently stuck on the next largest table in our 
system.  I will try this if it hangs on that other table.
