No, FreeBSD.  It does the same thing as Linux.

What happened is that the postmaster got confused by lots of kill requests
from the kernel I think so I ended up with 3 of them running.

But then I killed them all manually, ipcclean'd and restarted postmaster
cleanly.  Then, a few minutes later I saw that.  However, I might be getting
mixed up as to the order of events, so it is probably me or the kernel doing
