If by "broken connection" you are referring to the "invalid startup
packet" lines - that has been known to be caused by pretty much anything
other than a postgresql client connecting to the pg server port, ie
portscanner, someone telnetting, net bot, etc.

That's right. And seems like the init script does not check about
password either.

I also heard that Bebian install Posqtgresql with a locked password.
Actually there is no .pgpass under ~/ of postgres.  the pgAdmin3
generate one after I altered the original password (which I don't know
what it is) of progres and used pgAdmin to login using the new password.

But still, the broken connection is always there in anycase!  How can I
find out what caused the broken connection?  Anyone has any ideas?  I
need your help! as I haven't worked on *nix for years and have forgot
how to do such things. Just come back recently for Debian, but got so
many troubles on the new system.:(  I don't want to run the system on a
possibly harmful environment! 

I am working on it, but I need your help please! If you have any idea
for what I should do, please let me know.  Thank you!!
