good morning,

some days ago i have fallen over an issue which feels more or less like
a bug. consider:

test=# create role xy LOGIN;
CREATE ROLE

test=# grant connect on database test to xy;
GRANT

test=# drop role xy;
ERROR: role "xy" cannot be dropped because some objects depend on it
DETAIL: access to database test

this is a totally fresh instance --- all i did was creating a db called
"test".
failing would make sense if i would the owner of an object but i fact i
don't own anything.

test=# SELECT version();

version
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PostgreSQL 8.4devel on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, compiled by GCC gcc
(GCC) 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu7)
(1 row)

is this a known issue?

many thanks,

hans
