Thanks Tom,

My original post stated I'd had the postmaster stop without explanation. 
I now have log files. I can see nothing in messaegs or syslog of interest.

I start postgresql with the script by Ryan Kirkpatrick (basis used by 
the BSD script from the postgresql site). This logs to 

this is an extract:

LOG:  unexpected EOF on client connection
LOG:  unexpected EOF on client connection
LOG:  unexpected EOF on client connection
LOG:  unexpected EOF on client connection
FATAL:  lock file "/usr/local/pgsql/data/" already exists
HINT:  Is another postmaster (PID 1427) running in data directory "/usr/local/pgsql/data"?
LOG:  database system was interrupted at 2004-09-13 11:29:44 EST
LOG:  checkpoint record is at 0/16982C0
LOG:  redo record is at 0/16982C0; undo record is at 0/0; shutdown FALSE
LOG:  next transaction ID: 37412; next OID: 54829
LOG:  database system was not properly shut down; automatic recovery in progress
LOG:  record with zero length at 0/1698300
LOG:  redo is not required
LOG:  database system is ready

As you can see I tried to restart the postmaster before removing the pid 
file. There is alot of the "unexpected EOF on client connection". I've 
done a search for the cause of this error without much success, in the 
hope it is the reason the postmaster dies. Is this a hint to my problem? 
As I said I've "googled" but not gotten very far.
