In the windows service world, is there any reason pg_autovacuum should 
ever give up?  The reason I had it give up was so that it didn't 
accidently run against a different postgresql instance.  I don't think 
that will happen in the windows service world.  I think it should keep 
trying to do it's job until it's told to exit.
