Well, what the --no-tablespaces option does is suppress actions that are
related to tablespaces.  However, ALTER DATABASE SET options are just
dumped out by generic code (likewise for ALTER ROLE SET, function SET
options, yadda yadda).  I guess we could insert a hack that looked for
tablespace-related options and didn't print them, but it seems like it
would be a wart not a feature.

Also, the purpose of the option is to let you reload the dump into an
installation that hasn't got the same (or any) tablespaces.  ALTER SET
commands won't prevent that, they'll at worst result in some NOTICEs
during the reload.

In short, I'm not real sure this should be considered a bug.
