Ah. I see the issue. To reproduce do something like
# mkdir /tmp/empty
# mount --bind /tmp/empty /dev/shm/
and then run initdb.

The issue is that test_config_settings determines max_connections
without disabling dynamic shared memory which consequently chooses posix
which doesn't work. Setting it to none during the test makes it work.
