My guess is that transaction 18092 overlapped transaction 3280 so
data from that transaction can't be garbage collected or it would
invalidate the database snapshot that 18092 needs to maintain a
consistent view of data. Since there are nearly 18000 transactions
between the oldest active and the next, it's not unlikely that
transaction 3280 lasted long enough to cross paths with a transaction
15000 starts later.
