That has now been done, but it doesn't help at all in this case. It
was already pretty clear from the ERROR message here that the problem
was default_tablespace being set to an invalid value (which is ignored
in regular backend startup), so the new CONTEXT message just repeats
I wondered why we have to restore GUCs inside a transaction, anyway,
creating this difference in behaviour in parallel queries. We have to
do that after restoring libraries, in case they defined new GUCs, and
in commit 6c3c9d41 we decided that we should restore libraries in a
transaction to avoid breaking a bunch of extensions (though GUCs were
already restored inside a transaction before that commit).
