Not sure this is a bug, but I'm seeing the following message:

pg_ctl: another postmaster may be running; trying to start 
postmaster anyway
FATAL:  pre-existing shared memory block (key 9812001, ID 655374) 
is still in use
HINT:  If you're sure there are no old server processes still 
running, remove the shared memory block with the command 
"ipcclean", "ipcrm", or just delete the file "".
pg_ctl: could not start postmaster
Examine the log output.
pg_ctl: neither postmaster nor postgres running

However, ipcs shows there is no shared memory block in use:

$ ipcs
