localhost seems to be defined correctly.  psql-h
127.0.0.1 template1 gives me the same error:

kparsee(at)BFTTDEMO /usr/local/pgsql/bin
$ psql -h 127.0.0.1 template1
pq_flush: send() failed: Invalid argument
pq_recvbuf: recv() failed: The descriptor is a file,
not a socket
psql: pqReadData() -- backend closed the channel
unexpectedly.
        This probably means the backend terminated
abnormally
        before or while processing the request.

kparsee(at)BFTTDEMO /usr/local/pgsql/bin


and port 5432 seems to be listening when I look at it
using netstat -a.

Thanks,
Kian
