Could you be more specific about the problem that this solves?  I was
under the impression that the call that really needed to be changed was
connection = new Socket(host,post) in the PGStream constructor because a
dns or other network error could make this take a long time before timing
out.  Without testing it, your patch looks like it only is useful in the
case where a connection has been established, but hasn't gone through the
authentication process and the database crashed in that split second.
