What happens if I don't want to use this feature and/or I don't have the
certificates set up? Why are errors from getpwuid() thrown away, isn't
that a risk?
POSIX-isms in SSL code are OK. I don't think WIN32 handles SSL yet.
Please use MAXPGPATH to size buffers for file names.
What exactly is the "problem" you identify? I couldn't make it out.
