I am a bit on shaky ground here, but I think the frontend-backend protocol
changed sometime between version 6.2 and 6.3. The specific change was in
fact related to password authentication. (Gurus, correct me if I'm mistaken
in this).

The bottom line of all this is that if you want to use passwords, you have
to have a frontend-backend agent/driver/module which is compatible with the
new protocol. If you mentioned Postgre 95, it's probably an old, old agent.
