It actually stop them with a wrong message. I tried with a 7.4 release.
It told me that "The server version 8.2 is older than is supported by
this release of pgAdmin.". It should have been 7.4, not 8.2. And the, it
drops the connection:

  connected = false;
  status = PGCONN_BAD;

What happens with new releases is what we should do with old
unmaintained one, but with a message like the one I sent previously.

I'm not willing to do that. If it's not much work, I can still work on
that, but I for sure don't commit to do that. What I would prefer us to
do is allow the connection to an old unmaintained server with a big
warning telling that 1. they should upgrade PostgreSQL, and 2. they
could encounter bugs in pgAdmin as we don't commit to fix them with
unmaintained PostgreSQL releases.
