The closest I can get is a kill -9 on postmaster, and that does work. I
can't start a new postmaster while the old backend is running - because of
the shared memory detection stuff. But the second it's gone I can start a
new one, so it doesn't have that wait-until-timeout behavior.

Since that's expected behavior and there were no other complaints, I think
I'll go ahead an put this one in later today.

TIP 2: Don't 'kill -9' the postmaster
