Right, so it would survive into the new session.

Hardly seems worth it; there's not much data in it.  And we're not
generally in the habit of marking short-lived tables as unlogged
elsewhere in the regression tests.  (Maybe we should make some
effort to have some of them be so marked, but that seems like
material for its own patch.)

Yes, but that would be getting into the realm of new features, not
post-feature-freeze test adjustments.  It certainly couldn't be
a candidate for back-patching.
