Either that or a bug in initdb: it *should* substitute the same ID into
postgres' pg_shadow entry as it does into the owner columns of the
template1 system catalogs. Maybe it's getting confused. Oliver,

Aside from pg_type, you probably have bogus values in the owner columns
for pg_class, pg_function, pg_operator, etc etc. It'd be a lot easier
to create another user with sysid = 103 ...
