But the pg_subscription_rel is also not accessed on heap_open, the
problematic code is called from heap_drop_with_catalog. And VACUUM FULL
pg_class calls heap_drop_with_catalog() when doing the heap swap (and it
goes through performDeletion so through dependency info which is what I
mean by everything else does this).
