Without having read any of the previous discussion ... I'd say that if the
redirect info is placed in pg_hba.conf then I would expect a redirect to
happen before any authentication exchange, so that this is not an issue.
Perhaps it would be a good security measure for clients to refuse a
redirect once they've sent any auth-related messages.

But ... pg_hba.conf?  Really?  Surely that is a completely random and
inappropriate place to control redirection?
