Speaking of users, what are we doing about the creation of a 'postgres'
user on XP home with no easy way for the user to remove it except via
the command line?
Today I was with the person who reported this problem and I can confirm
that on XP Home the command line is the only way to remove it. I am not
sure it has to be an FAQ but I am wondering why more people don't
complain about it.
