What if two PQconnect calls happen at the same time?
I would really prefer the manual approach with a new PQsetsighandler 
function - the autodetection is fragile, it's trivial to find a special 
case where it breaks.
Bruce, you wrote that a new function would be overdesign. Are you sure? 
Your simpler proposals all fail with multithreaded apps.
I've attached the patch that implements the global flag with two special 
function that access it.
