The similar could happen with schema as well.  For example, even if
you have set the schema name in the search_path of session-1, it will
still be allowed to drop the schema from another session.  Now, we
will pass the dropped schema name as part of search_path to the
parallel worker.  It won't lead to any error because we don't check
catalog while setting the value of search_path GUC.

I am not sure whether we need to bother about this, but I thought it
might help in choosing the approach to fix this problem.
