You might need to export the variables and not just set it.  I think you're 
doing that with the other variables already, but I didn't see HOME being 
exported.  I've never had to explicitly export these on Redhat derivatives, 
so I doubt that's the problem.

What does your .pgpass look like?

I couldn't find it in the message archives.
