Agreed, but some code requires it. Which was my point. I'm

every time I try
to create a DB. It's really annoying. Funny thing, my DB2 
servers do the
same thing ...

I find it funny that PostgreSQL - while being used as replacement for
Oracle by more and more people - does _not_ have this 
problem... I didn't
even have a NIC in the server when I installed it...

(And yes, PostgreSQL does have ACL's - but the ACL list is checked at
connection time - not everytime you execute a DML statement.)

Are you seriously suggesting using PostgreSQL over Oracle, in production?
Mind you, I do pgsql too. But, not in high-volume production.
