Fixed as well.

I had to use the attached patch (on top of the above) to avoid erroring
out during compile. FYI.
The patch behaves as expected. postfix start waits for master to
initialize before returning with the correct return code.
There is no noticeable delay during startup with a correct
configuration. Differences are within margin of error.
There is less incentive to start master directly.
