Doesn't seem to matter, the ONLY place where MYPASSWORD works is in the 
initial login using uid ledgersmb, after that anytime I use the ledgersmb 
uid, I have to use the MYROLEPASSWORD.

I've steadfastly avoided getting to know postgres in particular and sql 
servers in general over the past few years, I see now that's been a bad 
choice....  On a related note, any recommendations for a good book on 
postgres in particular and sql in general?

As to the problem, after redoing things as per


and wth the caveats on the passwords in item 1, it's now up and running.
