Actually this looks like an issue with pg_ctl on freebsd.

If I invoke pg_ctl manually to do a start:

pg_ctl -D /usr/local/pgsql/data start

and then

ps aux

the root postgres process shows as:

/usr/local/bin/postgres -D /usr/local/pgsql/data

However, if I manually do a restart:

pg_ctl -D /usr/local/pgsql/data restart

the root postgres process shows as:

/usr/local/bin/postgres

i.e without the parameters.

The init script is not the problem as it invokes the same pg_ctl command 
line in each case of start, stop, restart (apart from the start, stop, 
restart bit of course).

Cheers,
Gary.
