Hi Robert,

Ah, that is indeed the point, sorry for missing it in your first mail.
user_cluster_map() (the function that figures out which cluster you
want to access) first looks at ~/.postgresqlrc, then at
/etc/postgresql-common/user_clusters. If neither exists, and only one
cluster exists, then it uses that. If no cluster exists at all, it
takes the lastest installed version as default. The last fallback is
to use the version of the default port 5432, but if that does not
exist, it will return an undefined value as the version.

I do not see which cluster it should default to, so I will add a
proper error message which points out the various methods of
specifying a cluster.

Thank you!
