Note with postgres there is a difference between leaving the host
blank and specifying a hostname. In the former case it'll use the
default, either from the environment or builtin. The builtin method is
via Unix Domain Sockets which are usually a much easier authentication

(Note: I havn't used the program in question, if it doesn't support a
blank hostname, it's a bug).

Have a nice day,
