Let's see...if I remember correctly from the last two rounds of this 
discussion, this is the point where someone pops up and says that 
switching to XML for the postgresql.conf will solve this problem. 
Whoever does that this time goes into the ring with Kevin and I, but they 
don't get a club.  (All fight proceeds to benefit SPI of course).
