Thanks for digging up the root cause. I can see the problem with HEAD as well.

This needs some thoughts, but first I need to understand the
whereabouts of this refactoring work in 9a1d0af4 as well as the
structures that 274bb2b3 has introduced. From what I can see you are
duplicating some logic parsing the pghost string when there is a
pghostaddr set, so my first guess is that you are breaking some of the
intentions behind this code by patching it this way... I am adding in
CC Robert, Mithun and Tsunakawa-san who worked on that. On my side,
I'll need some time to study and understand this new code, that's
necessary before looking at your patch in details, there could be a
more elegant solution. And we had better address this issue before
looking more into the SSL reload patch.
