[TEST REPORT]
[Release]: 9.0 RC1
[Test Type]: Install, initdb, first startup
[Test]: pg_ctrl startup of a newly-intdb'd cluster.
[Platform]: Solaris 10 SUN E450 Quad
[Parameters]: pg_ctrl startup of a newly-intdb'd cluster.
[Failure]: NO.  Server starts perfectly.  However, 
[Results]: 
2010-09-12 16:17:43 GMT - LOG:  could not open directory "DIR": No such file or directory   (Many repetitions)
2010-09-12 12:17:43 EDT - LOG:  could not bind IPv6 socket: Cannot assign requested address
2010-09-12 12:17:43 EDT - HINT:  Is another postmaster already running on port 5434? If not, wait a few seconds and retry..
[Comments]: None of this a showstopper.  
However, we have no 'DIR' in configuration file.  What is this?
Is there a way to set 'localhost' listen to use only the IPv4 interface?
There is no postmaster running on 5434 - Could this message either be more informative or - what does it actually mean?  We don't see the postmaster.pid file persisting after a shutdown...
