This error check is exactly same as PQexecFinish() and there some
explanation is given in comments which hints towards the reason for
continuing on error, basically both the functions PQexecFinish()
and libpqrcv_PQexec() returns the last result if there are many
and PQexecFinish() concatenates the errors as well in some cases. Do we
see any use in continuing to get result after getting PGRES_FATAL_ERROR
