Cannot drop database through web client and terminal

I'm using openerp 7.0.

Trying to remove a old database created long time ago through web client. An error message:

"Drop Database

Could not drop database !"


When trying to drop it via terminal:

"dropdb:  database removal failed:   ERROR:  database "testdb" does not exist"


List out all the databases and get a mysterious "+" sign before the database name:

                                                            List of databases

     Name    |    Owner     |   Encoding  |        Collate      |        Ctype      |  Access privileges


               + |   openerp   |  UTF8         |  en_US.UTF-8  | en_US.UTF-8  |


database1   |   openerp   |  UTF8         |  en_US.UTF-8  | en_US.UTF-8  |

database2   |   openerp   |  UTF8         |  en_US.UTF-8  | en_US.UTF-8  |

I guess this is the reason why I can't access this database and any idea how to solve it?
