I have been using postgres for about 4 months now, and I have to admit
it is an awesome product , congrats to you all people but I do have a 
lingering question

<pest mode>
in pg_hba.conf when my netmask is 255.255.255.0 like below the authentication
mechanism works fine

host    databank        x.y.z.12   255.255.255.0   ident sameuser 


but if I change my netmask to 255.255.255.255 like below it does not work
any more. Am I doing something wrong or did I not understand thing correctly ?
I think it would be better security-wise to have 255.255.255.255 netmasks for
individual hosts. 
host    databank        x.y.z.12   255.255.255.255   ident sameuser 
</pest mode>

BTW I am working in Greece and postgres with the Greek locale on BSDI3.1 works
fabulously ! Again congrats to the people who plugged in the locale code.
