Thanks. I still consider this a usability bug. Even in enterprise IT, it is
not uncommon to apply users directly to certain databases if there is only
one user account that will be used to access a database (besides admin
users, who are all probably members of a superadmin role). Also, given how
Postgres has collapsed users into roles, it makes even less sense.

The Grant Wizard's *Privileges* tab definitely has a bug. It wasn't showing
roles under *Group Roles*.

And the *Group Roles* or *Login Roles* sections ought to be renamed to
conform to standard terms or explained better.
