Well as Andrew said, we could also create postmaster start option that
defaults to don't save.

I think these days you'd simply use restart_after_crash = false. For
debugging I found that to be rather valuable.

That would have created an extended outage for this installation. I am not
sure we can force that for something that should not happen in the first
place (filling up the hard drive with dead files).

Nah, I meant that if you want to debug something you'd set that (i.e. in
the case you need the temp files), not you should set that.

Aww, yes that would be reasonable as well.
