Ah, and actually as I'm on it from your previous patch there is this bit:
+       else if (msg->id == SHAREDINVALRELMAP_ID)
+           appendStringInfoString(buf, " relmap");
+       else if (msg->id == SHAREDINVALRELMAP_ID)
+           appendStringInfo(buf, " relmap db %u", msg->rm.dbId);
You surely want to check for !OidIsValid(msg->rm.dbId) in the first one.
