Here's pg_hba.conf:

# TYPE  DATABASE    USER        IP-ADDRESS        IP-MASK
  METHOD

local   all         all
ident sameus
er
host    all         all         127.0.0.1         255.255.255.255
ident sameus
er
host    all         all         0.0.0.0           255.255.255.255
reject

pg_ident.conf seems to be all comments.

I can connect through DBI, but not using the postgres module.  Very
strange.  Additionally, I can connect by just using "psql" on the
command line...
