Hello.

While playing with logical publications/subscriptions I’ve noted that walsender crashes
when i’m trying to CREATE SUBSCRIPTION to a current server.

So having one running postgres instance on a standard port:

stas=# CREATE SUBSCRIPTION mysub CONNECTION 'dbname=stas host=127.0.0.1' PUBLICATION mypub;
^CCancel request sent
ERROR:  canceling statement due to user request
stas=# CREATE SUBSCRIPTION mysub CONNECTION 'dbname=stas host=127.0.0.1' PUBLICATION mypub;
WARNING:  terminating connection because of crash of another server process

Crash happens due to uninitialised StringBuffer reply_message in walsender.c:
