Thanks, I have logged that as Issue 422.

Thanks - the attached patch tries to expand on the documentation in this
It could be an idea to add support for the "user:md5XXX" syntax in
pcp.conf too. That way the non-md5 syntax could be deprecated, and
pg_md5 would only have to support one format.
I ran into some other issues with pg_md5, but those have been logged
under Bug 419 and Bug 420.
Thanks for considering !
