That means 

# TYPE  DATABASE    USER        IP-ADDRESS        IP-MASK           METHOD
host    <mydb>  <myuser>         localhost    
ident sameuser

only <myuser> will NOT be asked for password when it does
pg_dump -U <myuser>
when logged in to its shell account with <myuser>
and If I run a crontab with user <myuser> the above lines again stands true.

What you say ?
