OK. So why did this not occur when I was running 8.2.6 ?

To avoid any ambiguity, here we go

estp-intranet:~ # su - postgres
postgres(at)estp-intranet:~> cd /var/lib/pgsql
postgres(at)estp-intranet:~> cd data
postgres(at)estp-intranet:~/data> ls
base     pg_hba.conf    pg_multixact  pg_twophase  postgresql.conf

As you can see, there is no problem to create new files on the filesystem 
with user postgres.
