The attached patch fixed up the cleanup query as follows:
+ "SELECT pg_catalog.lo_unlink(oid) "
+ "FROM pg_catalog.pg_largeobject_metadata "
+ "WHERE oid = %s;\n", binfo->dobj.name);
And, I also noticed that lo_create() was not prefixed by "pg_catalog.",
so I also add it.
Rest of parts were not changed.
