I have similar problems. I created all as stated in the README and was able
to run postmaster as service then.
Now after several reboots I'm getting the same error as you described above.
I'm having this behaviour on two different machines, both work well at the
beginning but now...
I looked in the archives but all I found didn't help.
One suggestion was: "I believe it is an old pid file..."
Note the spelling: 'believe', no word where the pid file is.
I found one which looks like an old pidd file, deleted it, no way
still no postmaster service running.
So it seems there are problems and there are no answers.
Is there a FAQ somewhere?
