First, this question should not be on the -patches list. Please read the 
mailing list descriptions carefully before posting and use the right one 
- in this case probably the -hackers-win32 list.

IPv6 is a build time setting, and it appears that the current build 
environment used for Windows (or at least mine) does not support IPv6. 
It looks for struct sockaddr_in6 and fails to find it, apparently.

In fact, I am surprised that your postmaster doesn't complain if you put 
an IPv6 address in pg_hba.conf.

cheers
