Summary0005716: exchange fails with cryptic error message if DB role is not a superuser
DescriptionThe following error message we get from postgres isn't very intuitive:

ERROR Failed to execute `LOAD 'auto_explain';': access to library "auto_explain" is not allowed/(null)/ERROR: access to library "auto_explain" is not allowed

This happens because only superusers can use the auto explain feature. Maybe we should detect this at run-time and skip this gracefully instead of dying with such a cryptic error message.
TagsNo tags attached.

Fixed in 105555b4..39263a48.

Btw, did you see the comment on AUTO_EXPLAIN:

 * Set to 1 to enable Postgres auto_explain module. This will
 * slow down things a _lot_, but also provide extensive logging
 * in the Postgres database logger for performance analysis.

This was set to "1". Did you turn it off while running the final benchmarks? ;-)
