Are you sure this actually took effect (ie did you "pg_ctl reload")?

It's clear that this connection is trying to use ident not md5.
Either you didn't make the pg_hba edit take effect, or bacula
is trying to use TCP instead of Unix-socket connection and you
still have the "host" line set to ident.
