I'm using WIn2k/sp3 on machine at work connected to windows domain.

At the "Service Configuration" screen it tries to make a userid "postgres". 
I get...

"Want the account created for you?" YES
"Random password is..." OK
"Succesffuly grantred right" OK


MOST of the time I get "Account Error" "Invalid username specified: Logon 
failure: unknown user name or bad password."

SOMETIMES it correctly and proceeds to "initialize database cluster"

When I get Invalid username I tried deleting the "postgres" user, rebooting, 
waiting for the twenty minute timeout windows authentication always seems to 
take. But nothing definatively works. I'll try a bunch of times and it will 
work sooner or later.

I have found that by disconnecting the laptop from the network - it will 
install every time.

This has happened through the RC series as far as I can remember. I've found 
no other references in the mailing lists.

What is going on? Am I the only one?
