Sure, I used my pg_rep_test tool to create a primary (pg_rep_test
-r0), which creates an instance with a custom config, which is as
follows:

shared_buffers = 8MB
max_connections = 7
wal_level = 'hot_standby'
cluster_name = 'primary'
max_wal_senders = 3
wal_keep_segments = 6

Then create a pgbench data set (I didn't originally use pgbench, but
you can get the same results with it):

createdb -p 5530 pgbench
pgbench -p 5530 -i -s 100 pgbench

And delete some stuff:

thom@swift:~/Development/test$ psql -p 5530 pgbench
Timing is on.
psql (9.6devel)
Type "help" for help.


 ➤ psql://thom@[local]:5530/pgbench

There were 358 lines of that warning message.  I don't get these
messages without the patch.
