If my Postgres database system is completely down, and I try to connect to it using an existing connection in the DB Manager, I get a dialog titled Enter password that prompts me to enter my password.
If my database is down, no amount of password entering is going to fix this. By prompting me for a password and not telling me what's really going on (the database is not available), DB Manager may cause users to waste time checking for things that won't fix the underlying problem.
