Sorry if my sentence is confusing
If I give a proper hexadecimal encoding % followed by 2 hexadigit (i.e. for
e.g %2f, %2a) every thing is fine. When I pass a invalid hexadigit encoding
eg:  *%2h, %2m *among the host string e.g
then "PQconnectdbParams()" fails before calling connectOptions2(). In that
case failed PQconnectdbParams() also return a PGconn where connhost is not
set. If we call PQpass(), PQReset() on such a PGconn we get a crash.

A simple test case which crash is:
./psql  'postgres://%2hxxx:5555/postgres'

Call stack:
#0  0x00007ffff7bb8d4f in PQpass (conn=0x68aa10) at fe-connect.c:5582
#1  0x00007ffff7bb907a in PQconnectionNeedsPassword (conn=0x68aa10) at
#2  0x00000000004130aa in main (argc=2, argv=0x7fffffffdff8) at
