Mmm. I don't think it is relevant to this problem. The problem
specific here is 'The database was running until just now, but
shutdown the master (by pacemaker), then restart, won't run
anymore'. Deleting backup_label after immediate shutdown is the
radical measure but existing system would be saved by the option.

But, honestly saying, I (also?) don't have sympathy for the
situation so much and if all or most of you think the option can
cause another problem, I won't insist about that any more.
