Hello,

A few minutes ago, we were surprised to find a second postmaster process
running on our database machine as a child of the original postmaster. The
child postmaster was around for about a minute then disappeared. This is a
Opteron machine running RedHat AS4 with Postgres 8.1.2.

Does the postmaster process ever spawn a child postmaster? Is this normal?

Thanks,
Stuart
