Not postgres but a different account. The same username used during the "initdb" process. As for your information, the said
account/username can get into any of my local database without problems. Only yesterday when I tried to connect to template1 or
to any local database that it displayed the "Fatal: Invalid User ID: 0" for some reason that I dont know of.

Is there any way we can execute a user-defined BKI so we could probably add new account in both pg_shadow and pg_user?

I am using postgresql 7.4 on top of Cygwin 2.416 running under Win 98SE.
