I checked the shortcut and was unable to find any note about "close on exit" or anything like that. The .bat method sounds wonderful, and I would appreciate such a change to make the product a little more responsive.
Thank you for your consideration and time,
P.S. I apologize if my email were not being sent properly. I will pay close attention to this going forward.

I just ran a test on Unix and found psql exits with '2' if the password
fails. In fact, looking at the psql sources I see:
#define EXIT_SUCCESS 0
#define EXIT_FAILURE 1
#define EXIT_BADCONN 2
#define EXIT_USER 3
Notice EXIT_BADCONN. So, what if we call psql from a batch file, and
check for a '2' exit status, and then issue a pause for only that case?
