I looked at this before, and could not see anything in either the
postmaster or pg_ctl that would invent the address out of
thin air.  I think this report most likely depends on some
misconfiguration of the OP's system.  I doubt it should be our business
to work around such misconfiguration.  In particular, magically
substituting for seems utterly without principle.
