This is because of this code:
PLyResultObject *ob = (PLyResultObject *) arg;
FreeTupleDesc(ob->tupdesc); // <-- dies here
ob->tupdesc = NULL;
I must have been confused about the tuple descriptor APIs. ob->tupdesc
is created using CreateTupleDescCopy(), which copies the refcount of the
original tuple descriptor, thus causing a failure when the (seemingly
still referenced) tupdesc is freed. Is this behavior correct and
The dominant coding practice appears to be to not explicitly free copied
tuple descriptors, so maybe that should be done here as well.
