As much as I've seen people frown upon $subject, it still happens in the
wild, and Magnus seems to agree that the current failure mode of our
pg_basebackup tool when confronted to the situation is a bug.
So here's a fix, attached.
I've seen having tablespaces under PGDATA as a policy within several data
centres in the past. The main reasoning behind this seems that they
strictly separate platform and database administration and for database
inventory reasons. They are regularly surprised if you tell them to not use
tablespaces in such a way, since they absorbed this practice over the years
from other database systems. So +1 for fixing this.
