pgpool log is full of messages like these:
pgpool_1 | 2018-11-09 14:53:26: pid 4618: LOG: new connection received
pgpool_1 | 2018-11-09 14:53:26: pid 4618: DETAIL: connecting
I wrote test app on golang and succeeded to reproduce this on my local
machine. Go sql driver uses pq library, written on go from scratch and
it doesn't use postgres libpq C library. Would that cause the problem?
