Really?  Running out of work memory is expected on large tables.

I guess I shouldn't complain since I've made some good money fixing this in the past. And someone has been posting on -performance this week with what looks like the same issue.

It would be nice to throw them an explicit warning that it's occurring.

I think this is a bad idea.  It's furthermore pretty useless in the
autovacuum world, since no one is likely to see the warning.

Well, it would at least make it into the log file...
