Can you please say what version of the driver this patch is for? I suspect
its 6.2.1 or earlier.

For 6.3, the driver has had some radical changes (to accomodate new
features), and how the authentication schemes are handled have changed.

These are now:

	jdbc:postgresql:database?user=me&password=mypass&auth=password

or:
	jdbc:postgresql:database?user=me&password=mypass
with the property: postgresql.auth=password

I do, a lot!

Currently 70% of my programming time is on the JDBC driver, with the other
30% on the project that started me on JDBC in the first place. Hopefully
after 6.3 goes Beta, I'll be able to spend a little more time on the other
project ;-)

Anyhow, I'm just about to start writing new documentation for the driver,
ready for 6.3
