commit a565216f3f772514356a067d68b775331b01832a
Author: Bob Hockney <>

     Connection parameters other than connstring are ignored, forcing its
     use.  u.string in config_keyset in conffile.h is a character array,
     not a pointer, and is initialized as a zero length string, not a null
     pointer, so the pointer assignment to connstr will always be a valid
     pointer, not NULL, so (! connstr) will always be false.
