I'm pretty sure you're confusing unix domain sockets with tcpip_sockets,
which aren't the same thing. By default, postgresql only answers on unix
sockets, and tcpip has to be turned on.
PHP uses unix sockets if you DON'T express a host name in the connect
string, but when you do, it switches to tcpip sockets.
So, your tcpip_socket = true turns on tcpip while removing the host
parameter from pg_connect makes it try to connect via local unix sockets.
I don't think cygwin supports local unix sockets, but don't quote me on
The performance difference is pretty small, if any, so don't worry too
much about it, just find a config that works and you're gold.
