Fast shutdown simply means that clients are not given the chance to finish their running transactions before they are disconnected, which is totally safe (those in-flight txns get rolled back). Given the complaints in the log about SSL, I tend to suspect the software update more than anything else…
If feel a professional product like dcs should deal with such situations gracefully.

FreeBSD 8.2 (I'm still testing my FreeBSD port).

It's an external DB-server.

Sure. All other applications did a successful reconnect after end of downtime as usual (and w/o intervention).
