Subject Re: Failed to start database

Yes, I agree, it doesn't need to and should not try a shutdown, and that's
how the application's logic works. I have just found out that another
application by whatever reasons tries to make a shutdown in the described
situation. I wonder if this trial could result in a database crash -
eventually afterwards when the other application does the shutdown. It would
explain why I am observing the recovery problem so often.
