That was a quick response :-)

using a clean pg_hba.conf file (no user lines added), this is what happened:

*******
~# createuser -Upgsql
Enter name of user to add: blabla
Shall the new user be allowed to create databases? (y/n) n
Shall the new user be allowed to create more new users? (y/n) n
psql: FATAL:  IDENT authentication failed for user "pgsql"

createuser: creation of user "blabla" failed
*******

What am I doing wrong ?
