Uh, my guess is that initdb is being run as pg_ctlcluster, but that
there is some wrapper around that that is starting the database after
the initdb. I think you need to report this as a bug to the people who
packaged this since pg_ctlcluster is Debian-specific. Was there any
output after this to indicate the server had been started?
