I'm not sure there's any underlying issue here, except being in single
user mode.

That just means that the latch isn't initialized.  Which makes:

quite unsurprising.  I'm not sure how this hints at platform dependent

libpqrcv_connect() uses MyProc->procLatch, which doesn't exist/isn't
initialized in single user mode.  I'm very unclear why that code uses
MyProc->procLatch rather than MyLatch, but that'd not change anything -
the tablesync stuff etc would still not work.
