If you're using IDENT authentication then you can't log in under a
Postgres username that's different from your real (Unix) username.
(At least, not without fooling around with creating an ident user map,
which is probably more trouble than you want to go to.)
I'd suggest setting up your pg_hba.conf file so that this connection
is checked using passwords instead of IDENT.
