Compiled 8.2.10 on fully updated SuSE 10.3 with:

./configure --enable-thread-safety

Every thing behaves normally except pg_ctl:

$ postgres(at)linux:~/ pg_ctl start
server starting
$ postgres(at)linux:~/ pg_ctl stop
waiting for server to shut down....LOG:  logger shutting down
 done
server stopped

Perfect behavior.  Then:

$ postgres(at)linux:~/ pg_ctl restart
waiting for server to shut down....LOG:  logger shutting down
 done
server stopped
sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `null'
sh: -c: line 0: `"/usr/local/pgsql/bin/postgres" (null) < "/dev/null" 2>&1 
&'
pg_ctl: could not start server: exit code was 512

Not a show stopper but a bit naughty.  Please let me know if I can be of 
further assistance.
