I assume you mean PQunixsocket.  As part of the database connection, if
pghost begins with a slash, the value is assigned to pgunixsocket and
pghost is cleared.  Here is the code:

    /* ----------
     * Allow unix socket specification in the host name
     * ----------
    if (conn->pghost && conn->pghost[0] == '/') 
        if (conn->pgunixsocket)
        conn->pgunixsocket = conn->pghost;  
        conn->pghost = NULL;

Am I handling this properly?  I hate to be dragging around the unix
socket directory name in pghost for too long and hate to be propogating
the slash test throughout the code.
