METHOD #1:

server:~# su postgres -c "/usr/local/bin/pg_ctl -o "-i" 
-D /usr/local/pgsql/data -l /usr/local/pgsql/data/postgres.log start
1>/dev/null 2>&1"

METHOD #2:

server:~# su postgres -c "nohup /usr/local/pgsql/bin/pg_ctl -o "-i" 
-D /usr/local/pgsql/data start $@ >/usr/local/pgsql/data/postgres.log 2>&1
</dev/null&"

What's the difference? 

I can't seem to get postmaster to release the filehandle when I want to archive
the postgres.log when I use method #2... I've tried sending it a SIGHUP, but it
just won't give it up. Would method #1 give it up upon receiving a sighup, or
re-running the pg_ctl with "restart" instead of "start" ...
