We have an Access 97 database front end connected via ODBC to a Postgres
8.0.0 backend. Since moving to P8.0.0  we have twice experienced an
situation where we cannot reconnect to the backend following the failure of
a long running complex transaction failed (in the first because of a code
error the second possibly because of a timeout). After the failure we are
unable to relink to any database on the server from any client. The error
returned is "The database does not exist on the server or user
authentication failed. (#105)". In the first case the error seemed to clear
by itself. I have not been able to clear the second failure. I have updated
Postgres to the latest version 8.0.0. release but to no avail.
PgAdmin works fine from the same machines.
The advice in other similar posts is to check the hba.conf file and
database user access. I cannot see anything wrong with the set up and have
run out of ideas. However I see that the postgres server log shows the
first two lines with UNKNOWN  user and client IP address.  The remaining
lines are as I would expect.  would be very grateful for any suggestions.
