The postgres_fdw failure is a visibility-of-my-own-uncommitted-work
problem.  The first command in a transaction updates a row via an FDW,
and then the SELECT expects to see the effects, but when run in a
background worker it creates a new FDW connection that can't see the
uncommitted UPDATE.

I wonder if parallelism of queries involving an FDW should not be
allowed if your transaction has written through the FDW.
