I think I know what's causing the "mleslie" role error. If Mark did a
dump from an existing database in the create table schema it
specifically includes the user that owns the database, we somehow need
to change that to the live disc user.

A quick hack would be to create the mleslie user before import.
sudo -u postgres createuser --superuser mleslie

Another option might be to do a scripted search and replace for the word
mleslie in the sql file with user.
sed 's/mleslie/user/g' filename.sql

At least that should work according to
