This patch removes double-quotes from around the listen_addresses=%s part; I
couldn't find a way of doing that. But then, the questions is, can the %s
(hostname) have spaces embedded in it?

On Windows, if logged in as an Administrator, 'make check' fails with our

But, for some time now, a Windows' Administrator *can* run a postgres
without having to create a normal user; he just has to use pg_ctl to do so.
Thanks to code written by Magnus, pg_ctl gives up it's administrative
privilges before starting the postmaster, and hence the postmaster runs
without critical privileges.

So I thought that 'make check' could also make use of that functionality,
and hence this patch.

Is this new pg_ctl behavior mentioned anywhere in the docs?
