I seem to remember that we'd agreed that autovacuum should ignore any

On a vaguely related matter, should programs such as pg_dump, vacuumdb, and reindexdb disable statement_timeout?

Youch... yes, they should IMO. Add clusterdb, pg_dumpall and pg_restore
to that list as well (really, pg_dump(all) should output a command to
disable statement_timeout).

I don't know if that should be a default or not. It is certainly easy enough to disable it should you want to.
