Not sure if this is the right list, and you probably know about this 
already, was wondering if there's a fix imminent:

After installing postgresql-9.0.1-1-windows.exe on 64-bit windows 7, the 
'postgres' user is visible as a new user that allows screen logins.  I 
looked into this and it's because it's not correctly identified in the 
*64-bit*
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows 
NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList
registry key.  It appears that the installer created the postgres=0 
value under the above registry key path but since the installer program 
is 32-bit that value ended up in 
HKLM\\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows 
NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384129%28v=vs.85%29.aspx 
for how to fix this.

See 
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itproui/thread/16378967-8a39-4aef-85e4-d859a71648d3

for how to correct it manually.

If there's already an installer that corrects this, it's be great to 
learn about it.

Thanks,

Tom
