(red face) It seems I might possibly have neglected to kill the
postmaster from 7.4 before installing 8.0.

It is amazing how much better things work with the 8.0 postmaster.

initdb executes half a dozen reconnections to template1 after the
initial bootstrap, so it's real hard to see how a broken pg_database
entry wouldn't have caused a failure during initdb.  I'm wondering
if maybe your createdb command is connecting to a different postmaster
than you think it is.  Check environment variables, path, etc.
