Bug reference:      6664
Logged by:          Karthik Ananth
Email address:      karthik(dot)jcecs(at)gmail(dot)com
PostgreSQL version: 9.0.7
Operating system:   Freebsd 8.2,  Freebsd 7.2
Description:        

As per the documentation by default postgres server should run in
foreground. I am referring to this link -
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.0/static/server-start.html

But what I have observed is, it is not happening and the command returns
immediately.  Below is the transcript - 

c670e04:rkananth 16] /usr/local/bin/postgres --version 
postgres (PostgreSQL) 9.0.7

c670e04:rkananth 11] postgres -D /data/db/postgres
c670e04:rkananth 12] ps -A | grep post
65165  ??  Ss     0:00.01 /usr/local/bin/postgres
65167  ??  Ss     0:00.00 postgres: writer process    (postgres)
65168  ??  Ss     0:00.00 postgres: wal writer process    (postgres)
65169  ??  Ss     0:00.00 postgres: autovacuum launcher process   
(postgres)
65170  ??  Ss     0:00.00 postgres: stats collector process    (postgres)
65224   0  S+     0:00.00 grep post

c670e04:rkananth 14] ps -p 65165 -o ppid
 PPID
    1

c670e04:rkananth 15] ps 1
  PID  TT  STAT      TIME COMMAND
    1  ??  SLs    0:00.17 /sbin/init --

Further information:
Also found in   v8.3.7
Not found in    v7.4.2
( Same OS )

I would be happy to provide further information if required.
