Well, that's not a crash; that's a commanded shutdown. (The *only*
way to get that message is for something to send the postmaster a
SIGINT signal.) It's fairly hard to credit that there's any direct
connection to a simple SQL error six hours earlier, either.
I'm going to venture out on a limb here, but I'd suggest reviewing
exactly how you're starting Postgres. If you're launching it from
a manual shell command, and you're not being careful to fully dissociate
it from the shell's terminal, then you can get results like this when
you later type control-C, log out from that session, etc.
