What do you mean by selecting a database?

I do select a database when executing a psql, but I guess you mean
something that initializes the relcache entry and that's probably
executed after the auth hook.

That might explain why it fails at first and then works just fine,
although it's a bit strange. Wouldn't that mean you can't access any
catalogs from the auth hook?
