I replied to Sterling's question, but sent it to him directly, instead of
posting it to the list like I intended.  I'll get the hang of this stuff
yet...

I ran across the same message a couple of days ago when I upgraded to 7.0.3 at
home.  The error that's being displayed is generated by the
/etc/rc.d/init.d/posgresql script.  These scripts are meant to be run at boot
time.  As such, they are usually started by "root".  I simply "su-ed" to root
and executed the script again.  Everything started OK.

Hope this helps.
