I believe we do not call RemovePgTempFiles during a crash recovery
cycle; this is intentional on the theory that the temp files might contain
useful debugging clues.

Not sure how important it really is though --- neither crashes nor
tablespace drops ought to be so common that we need a really nice

the only semi-sane solution i can think of, is to have a superuser
only function that acts as a wrapper for RemovePgTempFiles(), but
still exists a chance for shoot yourself on the foot...
