Please submit the changes as patches, instead of the whole files.  Also,
please specify which branch do these patches apply -- is this for 8.1,
or for the current development code?  When checked against the 8.1
pg_ctl.c, the file you sent only contains a regression for a bug fix,
and no change related to what you describe above.

On the other hand, it may be useful to lose the redirection only on the
cases where it fails, so we still have reasonable behavior on non-broken
platforms.  Or maybe there's a better solution.
