I looked at this before, and could not see anything in either the
postmaster or pg_ctl that would invent the address 0.0.0.0 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 127.0.0.1 for 0.0.0.0 seems utterly without principle.
