Thank you. I'll have a closer look on it a bit later.

As mentioned in my comment, SQL parser converts yy_fatal_error
into ereport(ERROR), which can be caught by the upper PG_TRY (by
#define'ing fprintf). So it is doable if you mind exit().

I understand that and it's fine. But we need a explanation for
the reason above in the test case or somewhere else.
