Prefer the faster localhost DB connection, when appropriate.

If the user specifies a DBHostName of, but is using standard
MySQL port (3306), use a localhost connection, which will use a Unix
socket connection on *nix or shared memory connection on Windows.

If any user was relying on our previous assumption that specifying a
non-zero DBPort implied you wanted to use a TCP/IP connection, they may
need to specify an appropriate grant allowing access to MySQL via
localhost for the mythtv database user.  If, for some strange reason, a
user wants to use the slower TCP/IP connection to a local MySQL server,
they will need to specify a routable IP address for DBHostName in their

This should fix the issue Robert K found after 859ad36, and prevent us
from using a slow TCP/IP connection when there's no good reason.
