It seems like you have a nightmare to support...

One thing worth noting is that psql tries to log into a database with
the same name as the user running psql, but there is no normal reason
that anyone would have created a database called "postgres" in order
to match the user "postgres".  It isn't necessary for normal
functioning at all, though the server wants to run as postgres
