Yeah, I missed this when making the original change (this code is rather 
opaque :-\). The problem is that if we don't initialize the dbentry for 
the database we connect to, it won't get written out to the statsfile in 
pgstat_write_statsfile(). So the database won't be counted as having any 
backends connected to it in pgstat_read_statsfile() (see line 2558 of 
pgstat.c in HEAD).

BTW, the comment at line 2210 of pgstat.c is misleading: the n_backends 
in the entries of the dbentry hash table are explicitly ignored when 
reading in the stats file -- the value is instead derived from the 
number of beentries that are seen.
