[Pkg-postgresql-public] Bug#762235: postgresql-common: postgresql unit starts every cluster, ignoring start.conf manual settings

Package: postgresql-common
Version: 161
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I am running a Jessie system, and have multiple versions of PostgreSQL
installed. It seems that 'service postgresql start' does not pay attention to
each cluster's start.conf, and starts everything automatically even when they
are marked as manual. The comment in start.conf indicates that the manual
option should prevent init scripts from starting the cluster. Setting it to
disabled keeps the cluster from starting, at least.

Thank you!
