Don't think you can get to the password without changing the code. I can think
of two options:
1. In src/backend/libpq/auth.c search for "echo password to logs" and change
the ereport() to log the password rather than not to. Reply to this if C
isn't your thing.
2. Use tcpdump -s 255 port 5432 and see what's going over the wire. You'd need
to set plaintext passwords though.
Before any of this though, make sure you can connect from Access using that
