I just tried it on Alpha hardware running FreeBSD.  Same results.

[~/opt/bin]
dhageman(at)marconi: ./psql -f test.sql test
psql:test.sql:1: \connect: FATAL 1:  user "testuser" does not exist
Illegal instruction (core dumped)

At any rate, I am convinced that I am not going crazy here with the
results I saw on my normal database system.
