I've seen both these messages after each other when -i is not specified.
Been meaning to adress the issue of it not failing gracefully without -i
on win32. 

Anyway. It seems the postmaster goes down while a child process is still
going up (stats collector, I guess) or something along that line. This
way the child can't attach to shared memory, and there you go.

If you add PID information to the log, you will notice that the messages
are from two different processes.
