Hello hackers,

While working on serializable transaction isolation, I've noticed some
strange behavior in the first permutation mentioned in
isolation/specs/read-only-anomaly-2.spec file.

    CREATE TABLE bank_account (id TEXT PRIMARY KEY, balance DECIMAL NOT NULL);
    INSERT INTO bank_account (id, balance) VALUES ('X', 0), ('Y', 0);

# without s3, s1 and s2 commit
permutation "s2rx" "s2ry" "s1ry" "s1wy" "s1c" "s2wx" "s2c" "s3c"

Here, we can see a serial order T1 <- T2 without any conflict.
However, if I perform "VACUUM FREEZE bank_account" after the setup
step, s2wx throws a conflict error:
ERROR:  could not serialize access due to read/write dependencies
among transactions
DETAIL:  Reason code: Canceled on identification as a pivot, during write.
HINT:  The transaction might succeed if retried.

Is this an expected behavior?
Thanks & Regards,
