Hello,
fd.c[1] will remove files from pgsql_tmp on a restart but not a

I understand that this is designed this way. I think it is a bad idea
because:

Possible compromise: remove files only in non-Assert builds?

Oh, that seems absolutely reasonable. If we are using assert builds it is because we are debugging something (or should be) anyway.

Sincerely,
