Pretty sure you don't need quotes (checking a running 8.3 instance -
nope, no quotes).
I'll bet you are using an older version of PG binaries to try and start
the databases. Postgres did not recognize units like MB prior to 8.2.
If you try and start an 8.3 cluster with an older binary, it will throw
this error (I did this by mistake on a test cluster last week, I
recognize the error).
Make sure that you are using the PG 8.3 binaries. Run
If that's not 8.3.x, that's your problem.
