Bug reference:      1224
Logged by:          David Maggard

Email address:      drm31415(at)charter(dot)net

PostgreSQL version: 7.4.3

Operating system:   Redhat Enterprise Linux ES 3.0 Update 1

Description:        Restarting postgres appends extra -D argument

Details: 

I installed from the src, I am using 
/postgresql-7.4.3/contrib/startup-scripts/linux, I have found that 
restarting postgresql via the sysV script or pg_ctl like either of the 
following: 
service postgres restart
pg_ctl restart -D /usr/local/pgsql/data

results in an extra '-D /usr/local/pgsql/data' being appended each time it 
is done, you can see this by running either of the following after each 
restart: 
service postgres status
pg_ctl status -D /usr/local/pgsql/data

this isn't a problem for me, but I thought it might be a potential problem 
for someone else
