We no longer have the capability for external password files, which is
what the 7.2 docs were talking about.  We removed it when we went to
encrypted MD5 password and pg_hba.conf entries where you can reference
external lists of users and groups.

The file you were touching is a cache of usernames written by backends
modifing the pg_shadow table and read by the postmaster.
