Hmm. Where are you invoking psql from, and is it the same one you
ISTR that the Debian RPMs use a nonstandard location of the pgsql Unix
socket file, which means that an RPM psql will NOT talk to a standard
compilation of the postmaster, nor vice versa.
I've complained about that packaging choice in the past ;-)
