pam_xauth is broken. It should be fixed. Temporary fix would be to
remove pam_xauth from /etc/pam.d/su until it will be fixed.
And what is the owner of ~postgres?
If it is not root, this may be the problem too (system users should not
own their directories). But many apps (probably including postgresql) 
insist on owning their directories. In most cases proper gid and write
rigth for it should be enough, though.
