Package: postgresql-9.1
Version: 9.1.9-1
Severity: important

When upgrading libc6, it appears that postgresql is one of the services that
needs to be restarted for authentication to work properly.  After updating
libc6 from 2.13 to 2.17 (testing), I was unable to authenticate to my
databases until I restarted postgresql.  After a restart, all was fine.
