The error comes from libpq, or possibly from some other library (because 
I'm not seeing it anywhere in the libpq source). You might try adding
"hostaddr=" to the connect string.

Are you sure a database named "generic" exists? What *exactly* does the 
sample connect look like? Are you saying this works:
   select dblink_connect('dbname=template1');
but this doesn't:
   select dblink_connect('dbname=generic');
