Oh, it's a single simple-Query message.  You could reproduce the problem
with psql if you put multiple commands into a "-c" command line switch.

This is a basic oversight in PreventTransactionChain: it doesn't reject
the case where the command is submitted as part of a multi-query string
in a single Query message.

This is relatively easy to fix in CVS HEAD --- we can just teach
exec_simple_query to pass isTopLevel = true only when the querystring
contains a single command, or maybe better only for the last command
of a querystring.  I don't see any very practical way to fix it in
older releases though; at least not anything I'd want to backpatch
when it can't be tested first in HEAD.  Anyone have an idea about a
reasonable back-branch fix?
