Looking at the predicate lock splitting, it occurs to me that it's
possible for a non-serializable transaction to be canceled if it needs
to split a predicate lock held by a concurrent serializable transaction,
and you run out of space in the shared memory predicate lock area. Any
chance of upgrading the lock to a relation lock, or killing the
serializable transaction instead?
