Those flags are stored independently, but the bottom line is that a
superuser has all permissions anyway.  In other words, if it says either
superuser or createdb, you can create a database, etc.

This is fixed in 8.2, but in 8.1 you can just ignore it --- it's a
Mac-specific discrepancy in what a library function returns :-(
