Thanks for explaining the issue in detail and yes, I do see the issue using
your attached test file.

And I think the problem is with the "parseInput" call at the end of
I don't see the need for "parseInput" to cover the scope of
PQbatchQueueProcess(), also anyways we do it in PQgetResult().
This function call changes the asyncstatus of connection to READY(following
command complete message from backend), so eventually PQsetSingleRowMode()
is failing. So, attached the alternative fix for this issue.
Please share me your thoughts.

I would also like to hear Craig's opinion on it before applying this fix to
the original patch, just to make sure am not missing anything here.

Thanks & Regards,
