I'd prefer to put it in contrib/Makefile's installcheck rule, so that
we don't pay the price in contexts where it's not needed.

tiny patch attached. For reasons Tom cited related to scheduler it isn't guaranteed to fix the problem, only to lower the likelihood of occurrence.

A more radical solution would be to tweak libpq's PQfinish() to be a
synchronous close, ie, wait for the backend to exit before returning.
I think we've speculated about doing that in the past, but never been
fully convinced that it's worth the downside of usually-unnecessary
client delay.

Sufficient unto the day .... seems to me making it synchronous could be a cure as bad as the disease.
