fix: NPE in PGXAConnection$ConnectionHandler.invoke() of .equals(null) (

The PGXAConnection inner class call-filtering proxy ConnectionHandler
special cases calls to equals() by testing if the argument is itself
a proxy that should be unwrapped.

However it fails to test if the argument is null before calling getClass()
on it, resulting in an NPE like

    java.lang.NullPointerException: null
    at org.postgresql.xa.PGXAConnection$ConnectionHandler.invoke(

Fix by testing for null. While we're at it, also defensively check to ensure
there's exactly one argument to .equals. It's not sensible to pass more and
will error later anyway.
