Startup successful message, even on failure

Michael Glaesemann
A number of times when I've attempted to start the postmaster (using  
pg_ctl start) I've gotten Fatal error messages (usually when I don't  
have the shmmax/shmall settings correct) followed by a success  
message (something like "postmaster sucessfully started").

I don't currently have any shell output saved showing this, but I  
believe it's happened with PG versions as late as 8.0.3. If needed,  
I'll try to replicate it (Don't want to reset my shmmax/shmall and  
restart my laptop if I don't have to.)

Has anyone else seen this? Is this something that can be fixed for 8.1?

Unless you use -w, this isn't a bug, it's the expected behavior.
