You should write a cleanup routine and use register_cleanup() to register
it then you'll be called during pool cleaning regardless of whether it
times out or not.  There are examples of how to do this here and there... 
see note_cleanups_for_fd () and look for cases where the cleanups are done
early for methods of how to do that.  You have to block_alarms() while
unregistering to be safe.
