Bug reference:      2257
Logged by:          Evgeny Gridasov
Email address:      eugrid(at)fpm(dot)kubsu(dot)ru
PostgreSQL version: 8.1.2 CVS
Operating system:   Linux Debian
Description:        Can' stop server while autovacuum is running

I needed to shutdown my server urgently, but I was unable to stop server by
pg_ctl -m fast.
Examining process list I found out that an autovacuum process is still

autovacuum process (when active) did not respond to kill (TERM). Only kill
-9 helped to stop autovacuum process.
