That sounds like an FDW bug ... which FDW are we talking about?

The FDW should certainly not assume that only one scan can happen at a
time.  I would not think this would be a problem as long as you're using
reasonable coding techniques, like keeping scan-local state in
scan-local storage and not globally.

If you are imagining that you'd do something differently depending on
whether the current query contains multiple ForeignScan nodes for your
FDW, that's still doomed to lose, because of nested queries.  You really
need to manage storage in a way that doesn't make assumptions of this
