I tried to set up a simple master/slave setup and immediately ran into
this assertion failure. The slave is just a cold copy of the database
immediately after initdb. The first WAL segment hasn't been archived
yet. It sees that the first archive fail hasn't been archived yet,
starts up walreceiver but it looks like the start point hasn't been
initialized yet because it hasn't processed any checkpoint WAL records
