Postgres windows service shutdowns after start

I have a postgres 8.3 service working on win2003 server, 
it works fine.

But, when i alter postgresql.conf adding the stats_starts_collector = on (
or even false, which bugs me to the end) the service starts and immedeately
stops. If I revert the change, service works again.

The event log is clear, the pg_log is empty.

My login is local admin, and due to restrictions in environment, i currently
cannot runas /user:postgres posmaster.exe to retrieve the stderr or stdout
of postgres. 

So the questions:

1) Is it really connected to stats collector? [ the part in brackets makes
me think it's not]
2) Maybe, there is a forsaken way for admin user to run postgres?
3) How to proceed?
4) Is there a way to syntax check .conf?

(I know that I can send the .conf home and run postgres there,
but don't like this option)

Thanks in advance,
