I am not sure but maybe this is a simple problem
with the PostgreSQL start-up script. The script
is /etc/rc.d/init.d/postgresql. There is version
checking in it, find line:

	if [ `cat /var/lib/pgsql/PG_VERSION` != '6.5' ]

or something like that (it depends of your instalation).
Then find your PG_VERSION file in your data directory,
check real number in the file (perhaps 7.0) and place 
it in the script instead of your old version (perhaps 6.5).

This should help.
