Bug reference:      4392
Logged by:          Andrea Villardino
Email address:      andrea(dot)villardino(at)wki(dot)it
PostgreSQL version: 8.3.3
Operating system:   windows server 2003(or vista)
Description:        initdb doen't work with options -U username and -W

if i do an installation with:
msiexec /i "%PATH_DB_INSTALLER%postgresql-8.3-int.msi" /l*v
%DB_INSTALL_DIR_LOG%postgres_install.log /qr INTERNALLAUNCH=1
But when I try to divede msiexec from inidb it doesn't work.
In particular:
"C:\\Program Files\\postgresql\\8.3\\bin\\initdb.exe" --pgdata="C:\\Program
Files\\postgresql\\8.3\\data" --encoding=UNICODE --locale=C It works. But:
"C:\\Program Files\\postgresql\\8.3\\bin\\initdb.exe" --pgdata="C:\\Program
Files\\postgresql\\8.3\\data" --encoding=UNICODE --locale=C -U andrea -W
Doesn't work because when i try to start up the postgres service there are a
lot of error in the application event viewer saying:
FATAL:  role "postgres" does not exist
Even if the inidb output is ok:
C:\WINDOWS>"C:\\Program Files\\postgresql\\8.3\\bin\\initdb.exe"
--pgdata="C:\\Program Files\\postgresql\\8.3\\data" --encoding=UNICODE
--locale=C -U andrea -W The files belonging to this database system will be
owned by user "postgres".
This user must also own the server process.

The database cluster will be initialized with locale C.
The default text search configuration will be set to "english".

Success. You can now start the database server using:
