I was just looking at it. I was wondering why didn't you set the start
time in syslogger and bgwriter. If it isn't necessary for those, why do
you bother setting it in autovac launcher?
I am also wondering if setting it in InitAuxiliaryProcess is redundant
(or rather, whether the extra set in each auxiliary process is redundant
with the call in InitAuxiliaryProcess).
