As Mr. Lane says, it would be best to be able to make postgres sleep
for an arbitrary time.  The direction may be either a command line
option or an environment variable (like BOOTSTRAP_SLEEP) or both.  iI
think the env variable is easy to handle n this case.

How about mimicing postgres with a script that starts gdb to run
postgres?  That is, rename the original postgres module to
postgres.org and create a shell script named postgres like this:

gdb postgres $*

Tell me if it works.
