I think you are having another problem. 
I can create it here (with or without the patch). I am running 
W2000 5.00.2195 SP4. Maybe you are having a permissions problem? 
I am using a user with near Administrator privs.

If it really does not matter, please don't apply my patch Bruce.
(still do the rename though please)

Yes it only matters if postmaster is started/trying to start from different 
TS Sessions. I think we need to determine global existance of the shm segment 
to get rid of old processes/segments.

I meant if "run as a service", which is the same TS session as the console.
