Yeah, I was wondering about that yesterday --- that comment mentions
the case of temporary objects, but it only fixes the problem while the
script runs.  Maybe there should be a separate test for "we're doing
temporary-object cleanup" that would similarly prevent recursion to
an extension?

I can't think of any reason you'd want the current behavior.

Though, it'd arguably be better to remove temp objects created by an extension after the script exits, so that they can't "leak" into the executing backend. Dunno if that's any harder or not...
