Summary: applications crash with SIGPIPE

Initial Comment:
Any time a PostgreSQL server is restarted, applications using the ODBC driver to connect to it will get a SIGPIPE and often crash because of it.  Libraries have no business generating SIGPIPE, so MSG_NOSIGNAL/MSG_NOSIGPIPE/etc. should be specified for the send(2) calls instead.

Message:
Yes, it would simply be ideal, I think, to define a platform
specific SENDFLAGS and use that for all send() calls, i.e.
simply:
/*
 * Do not generate SIGPIPE for applications that get
disconnected.
 */
#if defined(MSG_NOSIGNAL)
#define SENDFLAGS MSG_NOSIGNAL
#elif defined(MSG_NOSIGPIPE)
#define SENDFLAGS MSG_NOSIGPIPE
#else
#define SENDFLAGS 0
#end

It seems that Windows actually did not copy the socket
SIGPIPE design mistake from Unix.  If it did, I think it
would be appropriate to disable it there as well.  Some Unix
platforms don't have a way to disable SIGPIPE at all,
unfortunately, so it cannot be consistent.  Thank you for
your help!

Message:
I can't such values in Windows. Is it related to *nix platforms? If so I would take care od it in the next release.
