Yes, completely agree, demonstrating the undesirable behavior is not needed
as documentation gives enough warning to user.
The test patch is decided not to go in for now, but will be re-implemented
with PSQL commands later. So, during the re-implementation of test patch, I
will remove this test. Thanks .

Thanks for the information, attached the latest patch resolving one
compilation warning. And, please discard the test patch as it will be
re-implemented later separately.
