Hmm, that explains a couple of things. The first example (with dbname=)
is correct for Postgres 6.5 and later, because PgDatabase's constructor
now takes a conninfo string a la PQconnectdb. Older releases used to
just take a database name, IIRC. So, you are apparently using a
back-rev Postgres on your "new" setup.
I had looked at the code in fe_setauthsvc() and was unable to figure out
a reason for it to fail (it's almost dead code, anyway) --- but I was
looking at the current code. I do seem to recall that pre-6.5 libpq++
would deliver this misleading error message on pretty much any failure
to connect, including specifying a wrong database name.
I'd recommend upgrading to 6.5.1 ASAP.
