Perl5 connect problem

I'm moving some perl-scripts from a 6.2 server to a new machine which 
runs 6.3.2. Also, on the old server authjentication was non-existant, it 
used 'trust', while the new one uses passwords.

In the scripts, I have:

$PG_CONN = PQconnectdb("dbname=rockhouse user=username password=passwd 

I used old-style perl API in these scripts, but with that you cannot 
specify passwords, thus this strange mix.

This fails, although I remember having tried it at home, where it worked, 
and having username/password/database name correct. Connecting to the 
database using psql gives no problems. postmaster runs with -i.

Any clue?
