That works, but interestingly, I still get a SIGHUP reload sometimes:

Description: pg_ctl start doesn't detach when run via SSH
When I run "pg_ctl start" via SSH, the database service starts, but it never
returns control to the shell. If I run the same command from an interactive
shell, it works as expected.
This is with or without the -w option. Here's an example commandline.
ssh email@example.com "su -c '/home/appuser/local/bin/pg_ctl start -w -s -D
This problem exists both when installed from source and when using the
postgresql installed via the debian package manager (of course using a
different path to the pg_ctl binary)
