Thank you for checking that. I saw maybe the same failure. It
occurred when visibilitymap_set() is called with heapBuf =
InvalidBuffer during recovery. Checking pendingSyncs and
no_pending_sync before the elog fixes it. Anyway the DEBUG2 elogs
are to removed before committing. They are just to look how it

The attached patch applies on the current HEAD and passes all
recovery tests.
