Um, are you sure createdb is connecting to the right postmaster?
When you use multiple postmasters you have to keep a close eye
on clients' PGPORT settings ...
If it is the right postmaster but wrong interpretation of PGDATA2,
the odds are that you started that postmaster with the wrong value
of PGDATA2. Remember that it's the postmaster's environment, not
the client's, in which alternate-DB environment variables are expanded.
(initlocation is an exception because it doesn't contact the postmaster)
