Vaccum error

Hi All ,
when i was executing this command :** osm2pgsql --slim -v -d gis /home/ahmed/GreatLakes.osm.gz**

i had obtained this error :
failed: ERREUR: VACUUM ne peut pas être exécuté à partir d’une fonction ou d’une chaîne
contenant plusieurs commandes ( VACUUM cannot be executed from a function or from a chain containing several commands)
Error occurred, cleaning up.

I had disabled the parameter autocavcum in the file postgresql.conf but i still have the same error.
Can you help me please .
My system configuration :
ubunto 8.04 - Hardy Heron ( kernel 2.6.24-23-generic)
the osm2pgsql version is : 0.08.20071007-1
the version of postgresql is 8.3.7
Thanks .

upgrade osm2pgsql to latest version and this wont happen. 2007 was a long time ago,

Problems with such an old version can hardly be described as a development problem. Also, you have an topic in Q&A which should be enough. Closed.
