[pgpool-committers: 6428] pgpool: Fix replication delay worker segfault when application_name is

Fix replication delay worker segfault when application_name is an empty string.

The process calls do_query() to obtain the query result against
pg_stat_replication_view.  If user sets application_name to an empty
string, the result data row packet length will be 0. However
do_query() did not consider the length == 0 case, which resulted in
giving NULL pointer to strcmp() which is called from the worker
process. That means the bug is not specific to this case (a new
feature added in Pgpool-II 4.1) but it potentially affects many other
places where do_query() gets called, although it had not been reported
in the field. So this fix should be applied to all supported branches.

Per bug 565.
