Good catch. Here's a patch against CVS HEAD that fixes the problem.
The actual segfault was caused by a double pfree(), but ISTM that
failing to find pg_hba.conf should be a fatal error anyway, so I
increased the priority of the elog() from LOG to FATAL and refactored
the code a little bit.
Bruce: unless anyone has an objection, please apply.
Thanks for the report.
