It seems postmaster won't restart under WAL. What I have done so far
was creating some tables and inserting fairly large amount of tuples
(100000 tuples) using pgbench.

Here is the test sequence:

pg_ctl -w stop
rm -fr /usr/local/pgsql/data
initdb
pg_ctl -w start
createdb test
./pgbench -i test
pg_ctl -w -m i stop
pg_ctl -w start

and postmaster does not return from automatic recovering job. Here are
last 2 lines from log:

Nov  1 12:38:46 srapc968-yotsuya postgres[14769]: [7] DEBUG:  The DataBase system was not properly shut down ^IAutomatic recovery is in progress...
Nov  1 12:38:46 srapc968-yotsuya postgres[14769]: [8] DEBUG:  Redo starts at (0, 287536)

It seems that the recovery process is waiting for acquiring a lock.
Here is the backtrace from the process:
