So, if the user mapping user is a superuser locally, this would allow
any lambda user of the local server to attempt a connection to the
remote server. It looks dangerous rather dangerous to me to authorize
that, even if the current behavior is a bit inconsistent I agree.

Your patch breaks the join pushdown logic when multiple user IDs are
involved. Per se make check.
