Ok, I got it working.  I changed 2 things.  

1) I'm connecting to localhost instead of my machine name.  This causes
postgreSQL to use a local socket instead of a TCP socket.

2) Because of 1 and how my security is setup I am no longer using md5
authentication to connect.

Do you suppose that the md5 authentication is not implemented in the
drivers?
