Hm... listen_addresses remain constant at and setting up
listen_addresses = '*' does not work either.. Perhaps I am missing

I forgot that... There is the same problem today when updating
postgresql.conf and restarting the server if there is an hostssl
entry. Do you have in mind to relax things? It seems to be that the
safest bet is to not reload parameters if ssl is switched from on to
off and if pg_hba.conf has a hostssl entry, right? That complicates
the code though.

Thanks. Making the restart/reload OS-dependent will be necessary.
src/test/ssl can run on Windows.
