Hi,

I'm installing postgres 6.5.3 on NT and I got it to work for user
"postgres".

However, I would like to be logged in as myself and be able to run it
directly. So, I removed the installation and reinstalled it and now I get a
weird error in initdb:

bash-2.02$ initdb --username=jskakkebaek
: not found
: not found
: not found
/usr/local/pgsql/bin/initdb: 74: Syntax error: expecting "in"

The error apparently concerns line 74:

	case "$1" in


I've tried for quite a while to understand the problem but have failed.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks very much in advance,
