OK, I understand now, thank you for your patience!

I think this probably falls into the category of testing Django rather
than testing Patchwork: db connection handling is something we directly
inherit from Django and don't mess with.

However, it seems that postgres by default will only accept passwordless
auth over a unix socket. This has been tweaked on the versions supplied
in the Travis image, allowing passwordless connections over the network
as well, but because Postgres 10/11 aren't part of the image, this
tweaking isn't done for them - [1]. This causes failures such as [2].

So what I have done is squashed this patch into patch 1 and applied the
combined patch and patch 3.
