Please avoid using host=localhost in pg_connect parameters.

As far as I guess, you have not activated the TCP-IP port in 
postgresql.conf, and if you use host=localhost parameter, pg_connect will 
try to connect to PostgreSQL via TCP-IP. If you do not use that parameter, 
then it will connect to the database via Unix domain sockets, which is 
really faster than TCP-IP sockets (and more secure).


Best regards.
