AFAICT, you can ignore the above error.  I started to notice errors like
the above sometime in the past, but they never affected PostgreSQL's
operation so I ignored them myself.

Your pgAdmin problem is most likely unrelated.  Did you start
postmaster with the -i option (to enable TCP/IP sockets)?  IIRC, pgAdmin
does not use Unix domain sockets.
