I was not able to reproduce the problem using the above scenario.
But when I did one more restart of the primary and standby, I was
able to observe the problem. If this is the same as you encountered,
it would be the "can't start hot standby from a shutdown checkpoint"
issue that Heikki pointed out. So it's very helpful to check whether
the posted patch fixes your problem or not.
