Not sure that that's 100% true. If you tell any of these programs to
connect to host "localhost", they will certainly go via TCP --- and
hence fail if the postmaster hasn't got -i. But on at least some of
the GUI interfaces, putting an empty entry in the "host" dialog box
will result in a Unix-socket connection not a TCP connection to
localhost. (The Unix-socket method is what psql and pgdump use by
default.) For that, you don't need -i.
Dunno if that applies to pgaccess, but try it.
