There is a lot of difference between those two. In particular, it looks
like the problem you are seeing is coming from the background writer,
which is not running during initdb.

I think the next step would be for you to compile in debug mode with
-O0, and attach to the bgwriter process with gdb, and step through it.
Then, you can see the exact path which causes the bgwriter to exit, and
that will give you a better idea where the problem is.
