i always do either make clean/distclean

but in these cases i've been re dl'ing into fresh dirs to be sure ...

Well, the 'official way' is to use the StartupItem script in 
/Library/StartupItems for 3rd party, and/or /System/Library/StartupItems for 
Apple-installed ...

I simply don't recall if PGSql installs one automatically ... I don't think so 
-- as I write my own and use in independent of the Apple hierarchy.

that said, its as 'easy' as "(path to)/startup_script start" or "(path 
to)/startup_script start"

the script can be named anything, and controls postmaster/pg_ctl directly.

if you like, i can post my script ...

ah.  my mistake.

i thought your were just worrying about getting the editable-query to open in a 
selectable query editor ...

i see that you're talking about launching a query.

what i've done on occassion is simply write a shell-script and wrap it with a 
finder-dubl-clickable wrapper ...

not "production quality", tho ...

i will as soon as i beat my build problems ... suddenly i've now got unresolved 
symbol issues all over the place. argh.
