FIX: Don't swallow the original error when moving posts

FIX: Don’t swallow the original error when moving posts

Dropping the temp table in an ensure block hides the actual exception. Creating the table with ON COMMIT DROP makes the temp table disappear automatically at the end of the transaction. We only need the explicit DROP in tests, because tests already run inside a transaction, so the temp table won’t be dropped after each test which leads to spec failures.
