I think we need a test case --- not minimal necessarily, but something
other people can reproduce. You might find that setting enable_hashjoin
and/or enable_nestloop to false makes it easier to provoke the error,
since evidently this requires that we (a) generate a faulty mergejoin Path
and then (b) choose it as the cheapest one, since the error occurs while
converting it to a Plan.
BTW, if you're not doing this in a debug (--enable-cassert) build, it'd
be useful to try it in one. I'm a little suspicious that the root cause
might be a memory-stomp type of problem, ie somebody scribbling on a
pathkey data structure without accounting for it being shared with another
path. It's possible that cassert memory checking would help catch that.
