Getting past the exception to get to the atexit_callback() breakpoint
in the debugger is proving a little tricky right now (and I have to
leave for the moment), so I'll play with that some more later.
Couldn't the callback have been called by another process though? The
crash did bring down the entire server, so assume other backends would
have terminated normally on the postmasters instruction.

Anyhoo, here's the backtrace for the actual problem:
