When I tried it your way  the attached fail.log is what it spit out.
running  version 7.0.3
on Linux RedHat version 7.1
I believe that it was installed as part of the original install of this
When I rebooted the machine it failed to restart.  It was running earlier
today.  I was building a table and used a shell escpe to locate a .txt file
that was going to be used to populate the table.  when I exited from the
shell escape it killed postmaster for some reason and I haven't been able to
get it back.
 thanks for your help
