                         POSTGRESQL BUG REPORT TEMPLATE
============================================================================


Your name               :Thomas Swan
Your email address      :tswan(at)ics(dot)olemiss(dot)edu


System Configuration
---------------------
   Architecture (example: Intel Pentium)         :Intel Celeron

   Operating System (example: Linux 2.0.26 ELF)  : Linux 2.2.15 ELF

   PostgreSQL version (example: PostgreSQL-6.5.1):   PostgreSQL-7.0 Release

   Compiler used (example:  gcc 2.8.0)           : egcs-2.91.66


Please enter a FULL description of your problem:
------------------------------------------------
When using pgaccess to create a new user the followin error results.

Error executing query
CREATE user "whomever" WITH PASSWORD "foo" CREATEDB CREATEUSER 

PostgreSQL error message:
ERROR: parser: parse error at or near """

PostgreSQL status: PGRES_FATAL_ERROR


{any variation of rights reproduces the error}


Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Try to create  a new user with a password 


If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The with password doesn't like the double quote characters however, writing the same query by hand and using single quotes works...  just change the query or check and make sure the parser will expect double quotes if that is what's expected.  So either it's pgaccess using the wrong SQL statement to create a user or the statement is being incorrectly handled.
