I saw that failure, but it appears to be a server-side crash:

2017-09-10 19:39:03.395 EDT [1100] LOG:  server process (PID 11464) was 
terminated by exception 0xC0000005
2017-09-10 19:39:03.395 EDT [1100] HINT:  See C include file "ntstatus.h" for a 
description of the hexadecimal value.

Given the lack of any log outputs from process 11464, it's hard to tell
what it was doing, but it seems not to be any of the backends running
pgbench queries.  So maybe an autovac worker?  I dunno.  Anyway, it's
difficult to credit that this commit caused the failure, even if it did
happen during the new test case.  I'm inclined to write it off as another
one of the random crashes that bowerbird seems prone to.

If the failure proves repeatable, then of course we'll need to look
more closely.
