It works for everyone else ... we could hardly have failed to notice
such an obvious problem ;-)

Are you perhaps trying to use a 6.4.x psql with a 6.3.x backend?  (The
older postmaster should've refused such a connection in the first place,
however, so that doesn't seem likely.)  It sounds like the backend is
failing to fflush() out the last few characters of its response, but
I'm at a loss to understand why that would be happening only for you
and not all over the place.  You might try attaching to the backend
process and using gdb to see where it's sitting...
