Perhaps this is the trace of pg_ctl probing to see whether the
postmaster's up yet? Normally it should stop after one attempt
though, because it's programmed to interpret a "no password supplied"
failure as meaning the postmaster is up. Perhaps you are launching
pg_ctl in an account that has a ~/.pg_pass file that is wrong?
