direct connect to ArcSDE using postgresql doesn't work

I'm having a problem with the direct connection using the "sde:postgresql:servername" entry as the service in ArcCatalog.
As far as I can tell, the entered info is all correct, and connection via the sde service works with the same usernames and passwords, but I get the "Bad login user" error message when trying the direct connection. pg_hba.conf is also set up correctly, I can for example directly connect to the database across the network using pgAdmin.
Does anyone have an idea what might cause this?
