Thanks for letting me know.
I think I only tested running "make check" at top directory, sorry
for my insufficient test.
The test failure happened at the beginning of replication(creating
slot), so there are no changes yet and getting the tail of changes
Because the bug we are fixing only happens after creating files,
I've added "txn->serialized" to the if statement condition.
