Digging into several win32 related issues right now, so I don't have the
time to investigate ATM, but I figured I should get it out here:

If I configure log_destination='eventlog', and then
redirect_stderr='on', PostgreSQL will attempt to create a logfile in
pg_log anyway. This file remains empty (at least through my test), but
it is created, and if it fails to be created, the postmaster won't start
at all.

I may be missing something and there is a point to this, but if it's
never used it should probably not be created in the first place, should

(I would assume the same thing happens if you set
log_destination='syslog', but haven't tested that)
