Can't find the thread right now (my search-fu is not strong today) but I
think this thread has covered all the basic points.  Does anyone know if
it is possible for the startup script to read the ~/.pgpass file of the
postgres user on startup and use that if you absolutely have to have the
main postgres user have a password on it in debian?

My guess is that you could also just comment out the lines in the init
script that are hanging, as the actual db startup should not require a
password.
