Why can't my users connect to their normal Postgresql databases after upgrading from 8.1 to 8.4? Was a permission lost in the upgrade?

The CONNECT privilege was added in Postgresql 8.2 so it is not present in backups from earlier versions. You need to GRANT it after the upgrade like so:

GRANT CONNECT ON DATABASE foo TO bar;
