Thanks for the report.

The problem here is with the server allowing to create a partition of the
table being inserted into, inside the table's BEFORE INSERT trigger.
Generally speaking, the command that's run inside the trigger shouldn't
have been allowed to proceed if it might change the table's properties
that the execution of the ongoing command is depending upon.

In this case, initialized state of the ongoing command (insert) says that
there is no partition, but the command executed inside the trigger
violated that assumption by adding a partition. The bug here is that the
command executed by the trigger shouldn't have been allowed to complete.

I propose the attached to fix that.

Thanks,
Amit
