Ah, good catch.  While I agree that there is probably no great harm
from skipping the lock here, I think it would be better to just avoid
throwing an error while we hold the lock.  I think apw_dump_now() is
the only place where that could happen, and in the attached version,
I've fixed it so it doesn't do that any more.  Independent of the
correctness issue, I think the code is easier to read this way.

I also realize that it's not formally sufficient to use
PG_TRY()/PG_CATCH() here, because a FATAL would leave us in a bad
state.  Changed to PG_ENSURE_ERROR_CLEANUP().

Changed in the attached version.
